It probably matters for people whom their total wealth is in the range of 9 digits numbers to be ranked in the top of the wealthiest people in the world specially when someone like Bill Gates who was standing at #1 for the past 14 years.
But not anymore..
The new phenomenon and Mexican telecomm tycoon Carlos Slim Helú dislodged Gates for the first time. His total wealth is estimated $53.5b while Gates’s is $53b only, according to msn money. So technically, they are of $500m difference only!
Well, would it matter to me, or any other ordinary person, to be first or even the 100th on this list as long as I am talking about billions? For sure not…
