World's Richest People

Sunday, 18 January 2009

warren buffett worlds richest peopleIt is hardly difficult to find a man or a woman who actually has not heard of Bill Gates. Similarly, Warren Buffett, Lakshmi Mittal, Mukesh Ambani, Paul Allen are some of the widespread name who enlisted themselves in the list of wealthiest people. The first and foremost reason behind this admiration is that they are rich, richest people around the world. Whoever not willing to hear the story of such people established in different professions! Almost all of us undoubtedly deserve some passions for that.

We could see the catalog of wealthiest people in every year by dint of Forbes Magazine, an American bi-weekly publication. It publishes the names of richest people and billionaires according to their net amount of wealth.

Index of measuring wealth

The latest list of richest people was made in the month of February, 2008. It was just a one day's estimation of wealth. The things considered to make the list were stock prices of particular companies owned by the richest people, exchange rates, ownership shares of corporation, exchange rates comparison between the companies etc. Due to fluctuation in share market, a single day was selected to evaluate the persons' valuation.   

The catalog based on the basis of the whole net worth of the richest persons. The total amount was measured in US dollars ($). But it should be mentioned here that the chief representatives of a country or state (president, leader, chancellor) were not enlisted in this catalog.

Who take over the title of richest person!

Knowing the richest people, their net worth of wealth and identity are always a matter of pleasure. The first 20 persons appeared in the list of affluent people are -Warren Buffett, ($62.0 billion) United States, Carlos Slim Helú ($60), Mexico, Bill Gates, ($58) United States, Lakshmi Mittal ($45) India, Mukesh Ambani,  ($43) India, Anil Ambani ($42) India, Rinat Akhmetov ($31.1) Ukraine, Ingvar Kamprad and family, ($31) Sweden, Kushal Pal Singh, ($30) India, Oleg Deripaska ($28) Russia, Karl Albrecht, ($27) Germany, Li Ka-shing ($26.5) Hong Kong, Sheldon Adelson, ($26) United States, Bernard Arnault ($25.5) France, Lawrence Ellison, ($25) United States, Roman Abramovich, ($23.5) Russia, Theo Albrecht, ($23), Germany, Liliane Bettencourt ($22.9) France, Alexei Mordashov, ($21.2), Russia, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud ($21) Saudi Arabia.

Warren Buffett

Placing the Microsoft founder Bill Gates behind, Warren Buffet becomes the richest person in 2008. The American wealthiest Buffett possesses more than $62 billion. His company is Berkshire Hathaway. He is one and the same person who is an investor, businessman and philanthropist as well. 

Carlos Slim Helu

The 2nd top wealthiest person Helu almost doubled his earnings for the last two years and maintained this position. The Mexican telecom tycoon Slim Helu's net worth of wealth is $62 billion. He invested in Telmex, América Móvil and Grupo Financiero Inbursa.

Bill Gates

People usually have been observing Gates' name at the top for more than last 13 years. So someone might be confused after hearing the news that Bill Gates is the third richest person. But it is true, Bill Gates is not holding the top rank. In 2008, Gates' wealth is measured as $58 billion, just $2 billion less than in the previous year. His source of wealth is definitely the Microsoft Corporation- the largest software company in the world.

Indian billionaires give surprises

It was generally seen over the years that most billionaires come in fact from the United States of America. In 2006, a good number of American richest placed in top 10 while the figure prevailed eight out of 10 in 2004. But the change has also come in the position of the wealthiest people. Indian billionaires show supremacy. At least four Indian richest (Kushal Pal Singh, Lakshmi Mittal  Mukesh Ambani,  Anil Ambani) were among the top 10.

Though Indian showed dominance in the top 10, American richest were the largest in number. The USA held 42% of total number of billionaires while Russia became second gripping 87 billionaires and Germany surprisingly seized 59 billionaires.

Youngest billionaires

Though it is no longer news that Bill Gates lost his top position but that a 23 year-old man became a billionaire is unquestionably hot news. The youngest billionaire's name is Mark Zuckerberg. He is just 23. He made his money creating social networking site, very well known name, Facebook. 

Women wealthiest     

There exist a number of women billionaires in the world. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest women having net worth of $2.5 billion. Being an American she got familiarity as a queen of media.

Similarly, we can mention here Liliane Bettencourt who earned approximately $20.7 billion through her family business while Christy Walton, $15.9 billion, Alice Walton, $16.6, Abigail Johnson, $13, Anne Cox Chambers, $12.6, Birgit Rausing, $11, Jacqueline, $14, Susanne Klatten, $8.1, Yang Huiyan, $9 and Maria-Elisabeth Schaeffler held $8.7 billion.

So once you have become one of the wealthiest people on the planet, and you have the chance to make a difference in the the world to help the impoverished, but you are too greedy....how will you feel on judgement day when God separates you from those who were less fortunate than you, but still found a way to help others?
hermosa  - Mrs.   |2010-01-18 07:52:41
Nice reading all of tne comments about wealth. I am doing a report about wealth and power for a school assignment and that is why I came to this site. Great ideas about wealth one thing I can say. It did not happen overnight. Some worked hard for it and some inherited it. We all wish we are all wealthy too. Don't need to worry where to get the money to pay the hospital bills.
isack lemau  - Amaizing   |2010-01-30 13:33:33
Personal efforts can move a person from individual poverty to richness. Many indians are poor, also richest persons are indians! Amaizing!!!
