Forbes released its annual list of the world’s billionaires today and for the first time since 2000, Warren Buffett is not in the top three. Even though Mr. Buffett added $9.5 billion to his fortune this year, he still dropped to fourth place. Mexico’s Carlos Slim is the world’s richest person again, followed by Bill Gates (a friend of Buffett and a Director at Berkshire Hathaway). Amancio Ortega, head of Spanish retailer Zara, is now in third place.
You can check out the entire list (including the 210 new billionaires) at Forbes.
And if you know any of the people on that list or people who hope to be on that list someday, make sure to invite them to Omaha for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. We’d love to show them around!Share This
