Poor Bill Gates

    He's no longer the wealthiest man in the world. I guess the recession has taken its toll on everyone.

    Can anyone loan him some money?

    Forbes says Gates is no longer the world's richest man

    It's not recession that's too blame for him dropping a couple of spots. Waren Buffet is the world's best investor. Also, he is well connected... ;)

    Gates wealth is not result of any surge while Buffet & Slim took high rank 'unexpectedly' so they will come back to their original spots soon. :)

    bill gates gives 50% of his money to charity, if he didn't he would still be #1

    I doubt he cares about being #1
