According to Forbes recent study and blah blah… There are 946 people in this world that are worth over $1,000,000,000. No prizes for guessing who the “Most Richest Man” is? For the 13th time in a row, Bill Gates is still the Richest Man of all. He alone is worth $56 Billion. And guess what, Bill Gates will still be the richest man if he throws away a billion bucks on my face. Shweet!!!
India’s Lakshmi Mittal is the 5th Most richest in the world. Something to cheer about. However the surprise package was Carlos Slim Helu from Mexico, who was a billionaire last year but was worth $19 billion bucks. This year, he is the 3rd richest with his worth being $49 billion. Wow! That’s an incredible growth. If this is how he is going to prosper then beware Mr. Gates, this year maybe your last year as “Richest Man” title holder.
