The annual list of the world's richest people is up on Forbes. Carlos Slim stays at the top with $74b and he is pulling away from the rest of the pack with Gates worth $56b at #2 and Buffett with $50b at #3.
#100 on the list has $9b, so now we know what to aim for and # 1000 has some $1.2b - not to tall an ask?
South Africa doesn't crack the top 100. But there are 4 in the top 1000 (not bad I spose?).
# 136 - Nicky Oppenheimer & family @ $7b
# 219 - Johann Rupert & family @ $4.8b
# 336 - Patrice Motsepe @ $3.3b
# 782 - Christoffel Wiese @ $1.6b
The big country winners (aside from the US with 31) are Russia with 16 and India with 7. Surprising on the downside is Germany 6, France 4 and UK 1!
