Make Money Online - Who is the Richest Person in the World ?If you're into making money online then you are probably interested in knowing who the world's richest man is (is that a sexist question ?) ? Well it's not Bill Gates and it's not Warren Buffett either (at least it wasn't when I first wrote this post - but it might be now) , the world's richest person today is officially Carlos Slim. Never heard of him ? Well, you should stay in more.
Apparently when Senor Slim was a young lad his father used to train him to keep clear accounts of all his income, costs and pocket money (why didn't my dad do that with me ?). Any errors or omissions and pocket money was deducted.
Well it took 50 years, but the training finally paid off: Carlos Slim has overtaken Bill Gates in the richest man competition. He is now said to be worth somewhere in the region of $63bn, with Bill Gates on $57bn and Warren Buffet on $52 bn.
Did he make his money online blogging? Well, not quite, he made it from Telecommunications and department stores in Mexico, and thanks to his father who started the family fortune back in 1902..
How much richer does he get each hour ? $2.7 million, that's 45,000 dollars a minute - so while you're sitting here reading this he's made 45,000 dollars, more if you're a slow reader!
What does he do with all his money ? God knows. Perhaps he gives it back to all those poor people in Mexico (after they have given it to him in the first place of course - less a small commission).
Let's face it he could give away $2.5 million an hour and still be making a pretty penny.
So there you have it. The super-rich make 2.5 million dollars every hour then give 10% back to the poor sods who made them rich. It makes them feel good and restores your faith in humanity does it not ?
