Carlos Helu overtakes Bill Gates as world’s richest man

Topics

Carlos HeluBill GatesTimes Online reports that Carlos Slim Helu is now worth an estimated $67.8 billion, compared to Bill Gates with a net worth of $59.2 billion. Carlos beat Gates by more than 8 billion net. The Mexican mogul’s wealth had shot past Gates following the rocketing performance of his telecommunications firm, America Movil [soared by 27 per cent].

“Thanks to a 26.5 per cent rise in the shares of America Movil during the second quarter, Slim, who controls a 33 per cent interest in Latin America’s largest mobile phone company, is substantially richer than Gates,” Sentido Comun said.

“The difference between their two fortunes is around nine billion dollars in favor of Slim,” the financial website said.

The Forbes List of World Billionaires 2007 had placed Carlos at third position after William Henry Gates Jr and Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway. Oh well, nothing lasts forever.

    I have always loved to read about great men who shook the world with the proper application of their God given idea's

    Mr helu slim is unimmaginably brilliant while the internet guru Mr gates is also an extraordinarily gifted homo-sapien

    To my own level of knowledge i think the world is all about ideas and as we all know that ideas rule the world .

    This two guys are no mare men they are idealistic in their different domains so rating them is just like trying to collect rain water with a basket you know it's so outrageous.

    To crown it all i think the response to the aforementioned topic is simply just that the two great men are in a race towards revolutionizing the cause of human life on earth

    I am a teenager from a local part of the city of lagos nigeria i will be extremely glad and fulfiled if this great men can help me educationally so as to rise one day to make the world proud.
