There was a time when, if you said the word Bilderberg in a political discussion, you’d be handed a tinfoil hat. The 21st century makes it hard to keep a secret though, and the group of influencers we call Bilderberg has even posted a list of participants on an official website.

There’s no complete guest list available to press, but a list of former and current steering committee members contains political heavyweights and uber-wealthy influencers of global policy. A few think tank wonks are also on the list.
Familiar names like Jon S. Corzine and David Rockefeller are among Bilderbergers past and present.
