Base: By Net Worth. All figures are estimated.

Notes: "The rich are different from you and me" - F. Scott Fitzgerald. By quite how much we show in this top ten where the numero uno richest person in the world is Bill Gates, whose operating software you are probably using to view this very web page. Forbes business magazine estimated that there are 946 dollar billionaires worldwide with a net worth of US$3.5 trillion. The Asian revolution is beginning to see results in the rich lists with 14 Indian and 13 Chinese newcomers joining the billionaire club in 2007, with the appropriately named Li "KerChing!" Ka-shing in at number 9.
