William Henry Gates III
Net worth: $50 billion
Earnings per year: $3.5 billion*
Earnings per minute: $6,659


The richest man in the world has decided he has enough money, and he's ready to focus on giving it away. With the money he makes every minute, he could buy a new computer every time one crashed. Or, he could double the daily earnings of 6,659 poor families.


Warren Edward Buffett
Net worth: $42 billion
Earnings per year: $2.9 billion*
Earnings per minute: $5,594



Buffett, who has said he doesn't believe in "dynastic" wealth, is giving $30 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. But he'll have enough left over to leave his kids at least a mini-dynasty. It takes Buffett eight minutes to earn what the median American household makes in a year.


Carlos Slim Helu
Net Worth: $30 billion
Earnings per year: $2.1 billion*
Earnings per minute: $3,995


Slim Helu, a telecom titan, is the richest man on his continent (Latin America). A dedicated art collector with a passion for Rodin, Slim Helu could have saved for only 11 hours and bought the bronze statue "Eve," which sold for $2.4 million at a Sotheby's auction last year.


Ingvar Kamprad
Net Worth: $28 billion
Earnings per year: $1.96 billion*
Earnings per minute: $3,729



The Ikea founder didn't get rich by spending wastefully. Kamprad flies coach and eats at cheap restaurants. With the money he earns every minute, he could buy 24 Lillberg loveseats at his low-cost furniture warehouse.


Lakshmi Mittal
Net worth: $23.5 billion
Earnings per year: $1.65 billion*
Earnings per minute: $3,130



The Indian steel titan launched a hostile bid for rival Arcelor in January, but after months of drama, Mittal seems to be on the road to success. He makes enough money every minute to purchase 108 shares of Arcelor


Paul Allen
Net worth: $22 billion
Earnings per year: $1.54 billion
Earnings per minute: $2,930


The Microsoft co-founder has expanded far beyond technology since he left the firm in 1983. He's invested in oil pipelines, the DreamWorks movie studio, the Seattle Seahawks football team and private flights into space.



Bernard Arnault
Net worth: $21.5 billion
Earnings per year: $1.5 billion*
Earnings per minute: $2,863


The French fashion mogul, who leads LVMH, oversaw all the details of his daughter's wedding last year. With the money he makes every minute, he could buy 143 knockoff Louis Vuitton handbags--or more if he's willing to bargain--on the street in New York City.


Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud
Net worth: $20 billion
Earnings per year: $1.4 billion*
Earnings per minute: $2,664


Prince Alsaud, the nephew of the Saudi king, made waves late last year for giving Harvard and Georgetown $20 million each to expand their Islamic studies departments. If he saved his money for about 16 minutes, he could send someone to Harvard



Kenneth Thomson & family
Net worth: $19.6 billion
Earnings per year: $1.37 billion*
Earnings per minute: $2,610


The media mogul, who died in June, owned 68.5% of Thomson, the company his father founded in 1934. He was an internationally known art collector, who bought Peter Paul Rubens' "Massacre of the Innocents" for $77 million in 2002. Today, it would take him about 20 days to accumulate that much money. No word yet on how his estate will be distributed.


Li Ka-shing
Net worth: $18.8 billion
Earnings per year: $1.3 billion*
Earnings per minute: $2,504


The Hong Kong investor made his fortune in real estate, cell phones, retailing and electric power. Last year, he donated $180 million to the University of Hong Kong and another $40 million to the University of California, Berkeley, even though he never went to college

Very funny but true!

Also true is that compared to 95% of the world's population you are incredibly wealthy and comfortable. To have 3 square meals and a roof over our head puts us ahead big time!!!! :~?
