Top 20 Richest person in the world 2011

The Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, the chairman and CEO of telecommunication companies Telmex and América Móvil group, with a fortune valued at $ 74 billion, once again won the title of richest man in the world. Last year, Slim has increased his wealth in no less than $20,5 billion . The traditional annual ranking of Forbes magazine, the best known parameter in the world to measure the wealth of individual, was released on Wednesday (09/03). Behind Slim, come Microsoft founder Bill Gates ($56 billion), Soros and Warren Buffett ($50 billion). Both had an increase of $3 billion of its assets. In 2011, there was no change in the first three positions compared to 2010.

The list of the richest of 2011 broke two records: the highest number of billionaires and the total accumulated wealth for them, $4.5 trillion. The amount exceeds the GDP of Germany, the largest European power.

Brazil, Russia, India and China account for 108 of the 214 new members of the list. By 2010, only the United States could account for more than 100 billionaires. In 2011, China, with 115 and Russia with 101, also come to this team.

While the world's wealth is growing, especially in emerging markets, it currently focuses on the axle Asia / Pacific. The region now has 332 billionaires, compared with 234 a year ago. In addition to the emerging social network Facebook stood out, taking five men to the rank of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, its chief executive, who saw his wealth jump 238% to $ 13.5 billion in 2010, co-founder Eduardo Saverin and DustinMoskovitz, its first president, Sean Parker, and Russian Yuri Milner investor. Since Moskovitz is eight days younger than Zuckerberg, creator of the controversial social network lost the title of world's youngest billionaire, with 26 years. The fever of social networks has created two other millionaires: Mark Pincus, Zynga, founder of Farmville, and Eric Lefkofsky of Groupon, collective buying group on the Internet.
