‘Forbes’ Richest People In The World
Fantastic – here’s another list of people with more money than me. Here are the ‘Forbes’ richest people in the world.
- Bill Gates – $76 Billion
- Carlos Helu – $72 Billion
- Amanacio Ortega – $64 Billion
- Warren Buffett – $58 Billion
- Larry Ellison – $48 Billion
You can see the full list at Forbes. It is interesting that there are now 1,645 billionaires in the world with a combined worth of $6.4 trillion. Only 31 of those billionaires are under 40 years old. Bill Gates is at the top of the list with $76 billion – even though he keeps giving a ton of money away each year to charities!
Usually I get to know that I am poor by waiting in line at the grocery store…but this really puts it into perspective! I bet all of these people could pool their money and give 1 million to each person in the US and still have more than enough for themselves…not that they would, but should they? And does anybody know who the richest person in Twin Falls is?
