According to Forbes, there are about 1,800 people on the list, and the top 25 most influential are all men.
The most influential person in the United States, at the top of the list is the CEO of Wal-Mart, Sam Walton, who is valued at $3.7 billion.
The list includes a number of prominent businesspeople and business leaders, including Tom Golisano, the chief executive of the New York Jets, and David H. Koch, the billionaire founder of Koch Industries.
Other most influential men in the U.S. are David Hahn, the CEO and founder of Uber, and Paul Allen, the founder of Microsoft, at $2.4 billion and $1.4 million, respectively.
The Forbes list also includes former Vice President Dick Cheney, former President George W. Bush, former Sen. Mike Dukakis, former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and actor Russell Crowe, who earned $2 million.
