    Dont believe everything you read.

    The oil tycoons that live in saudi arabia, Kuiwat, Oman and Yemen do not report their earnings to those fortune 500 magazines or websites. Its been estimated that some of the people in those countries are worth a whole lot more then bill gates or warren buffet.

    There are some people really get rich because of new technologies. Before Bill gates is popular before but now he is only on top 3. It's time to know who other people aside from Bill Gates are also the richest in the whole world.

    I do agree with you :)

    I found the unknown side of Carlos Slim visiting his bilingual website, www.carlosslim.com

    You can find everything about his multiple business facets right there.

    I think its better that Gates has been dropped to no. 3, will sort of ease of the pressure of being the richest. In-fact I read somewhere it does not please him to be the richest man (source: probably wikipedia)

    No matter 3rd richest or 10th rishest, Bill Gates is one of my most admirable people.

    Bill Gates is one of my heroes. Even if he is not the richest he is one the few that have a sense of modesty.
