Warren Buffet – Richest Man, Zuckerberg – Youngest Billionaire

Forbes magazine has declared that Warren Buffet is now the world’s richest man. Even though Buffet pledged 85% of his wealth to charity in July 2006 his wealth is increasing and is now at $62 billion, an increase of $10 billion from last year. More to donate now Buffet? Bill Gates ($58 Billion) who was #1 last year is now at #3 and Carlos Slim ($60 Billion) of Mexico is now #2.

Lakshmi Mittal stays at #4 on the list with a mere $45 billion as Europe’s richest resident. Mukesh Ambani ($43 Billion), Anil Ambani ($42 Billion) and KP Singh ($30 Billion) round out the Indians in top 20 at positions 5, 6 and 8. The number of billionaires from India are increasing, a very promising sign.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook at age 23 is one of the youngset entrants to the billionaire list. He has been “valued” at approximately $1.5 billion. I wonder what happens if and when Facebook goes public (or bought over?).
