Who rules the world?
The question is straightforward - Who has greater influence over the world, politics, society and the economy?

My answer - Capitalists - I believe controlling the means of production, the media and the economy gives you tremendous influence on what may or may not happen - This is not to say it's good or bad, it's simply a statement of fact.

RE: Who rules the world?
I get a lot of shit for stating our species mundane reality. It is about resources ultimately, religion, political parties, and economic views are still nothing more than excuses humans make to group and keep power. It isn't that you can rid our species of grouping, you cannot. But by recognizing our natural existence as our common existence we can work towards better priorities and cooperation.

Money is our barter system, there is not one aspect of global society that does not use money to gain influence, religion does this by donations to the religion, or in many cases mandated by a theocracy. Political parties in fascist states like North Korea use taxes to maintain their monopoly. And horrible laws like Citizens United allow corporate plutocracies to exist and grow. It still amounts to monopolies of power where income gains an influence.

All our convoluted codes as a species we call business models, political parties, and religions are excuses to make groups but at the end of the day it still amounts to access and control over resources and gain of power. The only key to more global stability is to recognize we are not a separate species.

Psychopaths rule the world.

Some of those rulers meet the professional descriptions in your list of choices but that list is fundamentally flawed because none of those things is requisite to being a sociopath or a psychopath. However, I would argue that there is an overwhelming preponderance of evidence to support the assertion that anyone, regardless his profession, who wants to be so influential as to be considered a world ruler is seriously sadistic and completely devoid of human empathy. Ergo... a psychopath.
