The third spot is shared jointly by the 'ultimate power couple' Bill and Hillary Clinton for being America's "most effective advocates for liberal internationalism".
The list features Barack Obama at seventh position, who stands a spot behind Pakistan's teenage icon Malala Yousufzai, perhaps the youngest person to figure in the prestigious list.
Malala, 15, who is recuperating in the UK after being attacked by Taliban militants for her advocacy of education for girls is credited for "standing up to the Taliban, and everything they represent".
IMF's chief economist Raghuram Rajan, who took over as chief economic advisor to the Finance Ministry of India in August this year finds a place in the list for his toughest assignment yet -- "saving the world's largest democracy from economic ruin".
Harvard University's young Indian American economist Raj Chetty also figures in the list at number 74 for his mathematical research on a range of issues in the US including economic policy.
