Bill Gates continues to be the richest man in the world

According to the US business magazine Forbes, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates remains the richest man in the world. For the eighth year in a row, Bill Gates is number one among $ 497 billionaires.

Even the loss of $ 5.9 billion last year didn't change that. His net worth is currently estimated at $ 52.8 billion. This puts him well ahead of the second-placed Warren Buffet with 35 billion US dollars. The relegated Forbes list are media entrepreneurs. One of them is the head of AOL Time-Warner Steve Case, who is no longer a billionaire due to the depreciation of his shares. The German media entrepreneur Leo Kirch is trailing in 445th place with a billion fortune; last year it is said to have been 12 billion US dollars.
