List of billionaires (2007)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This list of billionaires is based on an annual ranking of the world’s wealthiest people compiled and published by Forbes magazine on 8 March, 2007. There are altogether 946 billionaires on this list, with 178 newcomers and 17 returning after some period of absence. The total net worth is an estimate measured in United States dollars, based on the closing stock prices and exchange rates on 9 February 2007.
On 11 April, 2007, Forbes reported that telecommunications magnate Carlos Slim Helú had risen to become the world’s second richest man. Later, the Wall Street Journal on 4 August, 2007 and Fortune Magazine on 6 August, 2007 reported that Carlos Slim Helú had topped Bill Gates’ position as the wealthiest person in the world. Subsequently, on CNBC, Warren Buffett is referred to as the world’s third richest man on the December 24 special on him. However, proper accounting methodology requires that all people on the list be ranked on the same date. This list reflects the ranking of the world’s billionaires on 9 February, 2007, prior to Carlos Slim Helú becoming the world’s richest man.
Due to exchange rates and stock valuations the real ranking is changing every day. The combined net worth of the list is US.5 trillion, a US0 billion increase from 2006.
