Royalty and dictators whose wealth comes from their positions are excluded from the list. The list has been published each year in March since 1987.[1] Microsoft founder Bill Gates has topped the list 15 of the past 20 years, including the most recent 2014 edition. As of 2014, there are 1,645 people on the list, including a record 172 women.

Classement Forbes : record absolu du nombre de milliardaires dans le monde Les Etats-Unis et la Vieille Europe poursuivent leur déclin dans la liste 2011 du magazine Forbes, qui confirme que le Mexicain Carlos Slim reste l'homme le plus riche du monde, et les pays du BRIC (Brésil, Russie, Inde et Chine) affichent une progression insolente. Pour la deuxième année consécutive dans le classement annuel du magazine, l'homme le plus riche du monde n'est plus un Américain, mais le Mexicain Carlos Slim (74 milliards de dollars), qui devance Bill Gates (56 milliards). Si ce n'était l'importance de ses donations, le cofondateur de Microsoft occuperait cependant la première place. En un an, le roi mexicain des télécommunications et sa famille ont accru leur patrimoine de plus de 20 milliards de dollars. Chez les puissants de la planète, la crise est bien oubliée : le nombre total de milliardaires est de 1 210 en 2011, un record absolu depuis les vingt-cinq ans d'existence de ce classement, et 214 de plus que l'an dernier.

I am a professional martial artist as well as a Pre-Med college student. I am graduating from college without any debt. I am only 21 years old and I have almost $10 Million USD when I put my Trust Fund and Stock options together. My family owns a private manufacturing company that produces wet wipes and coffee filters and the like. The company competes evenly with major players like Proctor and Gamble. I am also Active Duty US Military (Army) who are paying in full for my Medical School.
I walked from the West Side Highway to Chinatown yesterday in the early afternoon. I passed not one, but two marches uptown to Times Square and walked along with them for a while. New York City is in the throes of the OccupyWallStreet protests. What was most noticeable to me was not the protestors and their signs and chants; it was the amount of police accompanying them. It was a massive show of force. And it was scary to see.

Les plus grosses fortunes de France ne sont pas toutes au CAC 40 ! Les plus grosses fortunes de France ne sont pas toutes au CAC 40 ! Comme tous les ans, le magazine Challenges vient de livrer son classement des 500 premières fortunes de France. L'occasion de s'interroger sur le lien entre ce palmarès de la richesse nationale et l'indice CAC 40, le baromètre phare de la Bourse de Paris. L'appartenance à cette élite de l'économie française (certains évoquent même une secte ou un état dans l'état) garantit-elle une place sur l'une des quarante premières marches du classement des plus grosses fortunes françaises ? Pas du tout !
On s'en doutait un peu, mais la confirmation est officielle : en France, les inégalités se creusent. Mais elles ne se creusent pas par le bas, par l'accroissement de la part des pauvres dans la population. Elles se creusent par le haut, les riches devenant sans cesse plus riches. Les chiffres que vient de publier l'Insee dans sa publication annuelle sur « Les revenus et le patrimoine des ménages » [1] sont sans appel. Dans le bas de la pyramide sociale, la proportion des personnes vivant au-dessous du seuil de pauvreté est passée de 14,5 % à 13 % entre 1996 et 2008 (dernière année connue).

The 1% are the very best destroyers of wealth the world has ever seen | George Monbiot | Comment is free

Illustration by Daniel Pudles If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire. The claims that the ultra-rich 1% make for themselves – that they are possessed of unique intelligence or creativity or drive – are examples of the self-attribution fallacy. This means crediting yourself with outcomes for which you weren't responsible. Many of those who are rich today got there because they were able to capture certain jobs. This capture owes less to talent and intelligence than to a combination of the ruthless exploitation of others and accidents of birth, as such jobs are taken disproportionately by people born in certain places and into certain classes.
