the world's billionaires

 

An excellent infographic, courtesy of our friends at Statista.  I’ve written before about how to become a billionaire.  The world population as of 2010 was 6,840,507,003.  Only 1,226 of those humans are billionaires, which is – in percentages – 0.000018 percent.  The wealth increase in the world’s billionaires has been in their net worth, not in the number of billionaires.  As I wrote about in my earlier article, your chances of being a billionaire were far, far better if you were an American in the latter half of the 20th century, but in the first half of the 21st you’ve got a much better chance if you’re not an American.    So who wants to be a billionaire?  Honestly, I don’t.  I’ll settle for hundred millionaire, because I’m simple like that.  Hah.
