Ranking of the World's Wealthiest People (1998) »

(1 votes)

This ranking lists the richest people on the planet, taking different sources as a reference: Forbes, Fortune, People, Internet etc. Currently, the list of the world's wealthiest people only includes those whose fortunes surpass a billion dollars. This limitation is imposed by the Forbes study as every year, due to inflation, the number of multimillionaires that reach this privileged sum of money increases. Just out of curiosity, we suggest that you compare the assets of the first names on this list with the Gross Domestic Product of some countries in the world. The result is surprising.

Many rankings have multiple editions and you can choose the one you want to display
