The Man Who Owns the World

Forbes - - The Top 20 -

IN THE 30 YEARS we’ve been com­pil­ing our defini­tive list of the world’s rich­est, only five men ( yes, they’ve all been men) have claimed the top spot. Seven­teen times that man was named Bill Gates. Though even he isn’t as rich as he was at the peak of the dot-com bub­ble, when his in­fla­tion-ad­justed net worth hit a stag­ger­ing $128 bil­lion. In the four years prior to that, his nom­i­nal net worth soared from $13 bil­lion to $90 bil­lion—more than it is even now, nearly two decades later.
