Richest Americans List 2013
400 Richest American People 2013 Review
For the 20th time in a row the richest person in the United States of America is.. wait for it.. Bill Gates! It's interesting how nothing much really happens with the top 10 list of America's richest. They might go up or down a few places here and there, but those at the very top of the list have become static. I haven't had a good look at the Forbes 400 list yet but I'm guessing Warren Buffett is at number 2 and Larry Ellison is at number 3 (OK now I have checked and I was right!).

World's Billionaires Review 2009
Americans dominated the billionaire list this year, carrying 45% of the list's slots and holding 44% of the wealth on the Forbes list. Economic declines in the last part of 2008 are partially to blame for the decline in both wealth and number of billionaires on the March list with some individuals losing 50% or more of their net worth over the last 12 months. Overall, the collective net worth of the richest people is estimated around $2.4 trillion, a whole $2 trillion lower than last year's list.

China's Richest People 2008
List of the Richest Chinese People in 2008
China had a booming industry in 2007 and its wealthy residents amassed billions of dollars in fortunes. 2008, however, has turned out to be less than ideal for China's elite and Forbes recent list of China's top 400 richest people reflects just how much the global economy is affecting them. The estimated combined net worth of China's 400 in 2008 was $173 billion, over $100 billion less than the previous year. Losses and drops in assets are blamed on the recent 60% drop in mainland stocks combined with a 50% decline in shares in Hong Kong.
