This is a meaningless and incomplete list until Huss's name is on it.
Actually, it's more the fact that it's in dollars. I mean, If you read the whole list, I'm at 37 and the tramp outside Manchester Airport that I gave a couple of spare Euro notes to when I last got back from the continent is at number 127.
Thanks for putting up that list, helped me to find out that that Aldi billionaire family Albrecht lives less than a 2-hour drive away.
I wonder if Amancio Ortega would be interested in owning a soccer club, just like Berlusconi and Abramovich?
You have to hand it to the Waltons for doing a terrific job in picking their parents. All the other Americans are (more or less) self-made.
The highest Dutch entry is Mrs Carvalho, daughter of and heir to the late Freddy Heineken. The byatch never even worked for a living.
She probably gets free beer as well. Life isn't fair
Alice Walton lives near my ranch. Several years back, she hired a friend of mine to do a huge fence job. I came along one day just so I could see the spread. At about 8 am, she comes roaring up in her SUV, obviously ********ed up on some cocktail of drugs, and starts yelling for all the strange mexicans to get the ******** off her land. So we leave. That evening, her assistant calls my friend and apologizes and invites him to come back out the next day. This exact scene repeated itself twice more over the next month. Finally, my friend said ******** it, pulled off the job, and submitted his bill. She refused to pay it! He slapped a lien on her property and that's where it stands today.
you have a friend?
And here's proof..
looks like he's got a couple more friends.
This is why I never have to turn around on BigSoccer. Segroves gots my back.
I thought the Sultan of Brunei was the World's Richest Man. What happened to him?
Suprised the Mars family doesn't have any members either.
Spent it all on lavish orgies from what I hear.
Some expensive haircuts.

They're probably all criminals. Martha Stewart anyone?
But she was worth more in prison. Perhaps the only billionaire in the world with an ankle bracelet monitoring her movements.
But they all look so honest.

9 Lawrence Ellison 60 18.4 United States United States , CA , Silicon Valley
turned into the Slutman of Brunei?
They are on a separate list, because in the case of rulers like the Sultan and the Saudi royals, their wealth is also the national treasury, it is difficult to really say what is the ruler's and what is the country's.
That said, the Sultan is second on the rulers list (behind King Fahd) with $20 Billion.
Interestingly, Fidel Castro is on the "rulers" list worth $550 M. Maybe Cuba is the socialist paradise after all.
