If you asked most people in the world, the answer probably would be “Bill Gates.”  Most people who keep up with news would probably even say “Carlos Slim” from Mexico.  Just a few months ago in July, Slim surpassed Gates and reigned as the richest for a few months.  However, it seems with the stock markets volatility these days, we’ll have 10 “richest person(s)” in the world by the end of the year. 

Well….(to the sound of the beating of a drum)…the latest change is now an Indian, Mukesh Ambani who is now worth $63.2 billion dollars as of October 29, 2007

The latest list (as of Oct 29) is:

  • Mukesh Ambani – $63.2 billion
  • Carlos Slim Helu – $62.2993 billion
  • William (Bill) Gates – $62.29 billion
  • Warren Buffett – $55.9 billion
  • Lakshmi Mittal – $50.9 billion
  • Side note: Ambani is currently building a 60 story HUGE behemoth of a building for a home in the city which some say has the world’s 2nd largest slum, Mumbai.  A picture I saw on some digg comments regarding the story were shown on this link.
