The World’s Billionaires

February 27, 2006 by  

From the article

The collective net worth of the 691 billionaires we could find is $2.2 trillion, up $300 billion from the combined worth of the 587 people listed last year. Every region saw gains. The world’s richest moguls now hail from 47 countries, including, for the first time, Kazakhstan, Poland, Ukraine and even Iceland. The newcomers include 69 Americans and 38 Europeans. More than half of them are entirely self-made.

Not surprisingly, several Malaysian richest have made it into the list as well including Robert Kuok, Ananda Krishnan, Lim Goh Tong, Teh Hong Piow, Quek Leng Chan & family and Tiong Hiew King

I am 38,with zero money to actualise some industry ideas i’ve had for 7 years car,rented one bed flat. used to be comfortable but a series of misfortunes-things have been stagnated since. I desperately solicit the help of Our Lord Jesus for any billion dollar foundation to draw this dire man out of murky waters. at this rate, wouldnt mind working round the clock for a dubai billionaire in any field to raise enough to start up again. GOD BLess!
