Forbes has been listing billionaires and millionaires and their respective statistics for years now. Being on this list is not just an honor but also recognition among peers for all these hard working gentlemen and ladies and their companies.
It has been thus found that the combined wealth of these billionaires from all over the world amount to almost $6.4 trillion. But looking at it a different way, if contributed among the population of the world, each person would get approximately $914.
While there have been 268 newly added billionaires to this list, a hundred of them have fallen out of it whereas 16 of the listed billionaires passed away in the last financial year.
