Change of World's Richest Man

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft had been the world's richest person for a number of years now. Really respect a Harvard dropout who could make almost every single pc/laptop to adopt his product. What a brainy!

Forbes has also listed Carlos Slim as the 3rd richest person in the world. But recent news have stated that Carlos Slim from Mexico has overtaken Bill Gates in the ranking.

Recent share price hike in Carlos Slim's company - America Movil has pushed him up the ranking. Did he manipulate the share price? Hey, it's not surprising that such manipulation could happen. Besides this company, he also owns also owns the Inbursa financial group and the Grupo Carso industrial conglomerate.

What's the difference like between this top 2 guys? Carlos Slim is reported to have a fortune of US$67.8bn (£33.6bn) compared to Bill Gates' US$59.2bn. gOoDnEsS mE!!!!!!!
