Rich List - The world's billionaries

02 March 2008 |

RSS survey suggests that one of the most popular articles read on the internet is "The World's Billionaires" on Forbes Magazine. Most of the billionaires surprisingly are self-made. The quickest ones to climb the billionaire's ladder are Larry Page and Sergy Brin - the founders of search engine "Google". Both of them have common marital status : "Single" !!! with a net worth of $ 16.6 billion. (Forbes 2007).

I compiled the statistics of the billionaires from India and China:

India : 30 billionaires with a total net worth of $ 152.30 billion.
China :38 billionaires with a total net worth of $ 140.20 billion.

When you read the educational profiles of the billionaires, they are self made or from Engineering background. Does it mean Accountants are not successful in the business ? Or whether accountants are better in supporting somebody's business? Does studying Accountancy make us follow "Conservative Approach"?


What do you think, you would like to become ? Do you think of owning a company .... boss of everyone .... second to no one. Or do you own a company ?
