For the 15th Time, Gates is the Richest

| Filed under: Business Blitz


With a net worth of $57 billion, Bill Gates has topped the U.S. rich list. Again.

He's held the top spot for 15 straight years!

However, it looks like the economic downturn has hit Mr. Moneybags.

Last year, Gates was 'valued' at $59 billion.

Warren Buffet came in at #2.

His worth?

$50 billion.

We'd be happy to be worth 1/1000th of Gates' cheese!

    I cannot even fathom how much money that really is…

    I am evidentally too simple, because I would be happy with 1/10000 of it too.

    Why do only a few hundred people have ALL the money and the rest of us schmoes have to toil and live meagerly and within our means with set wages and caps on income? The scales are unbalanced.

    Thinking about this type of wealth makes me pissed off and I have to leave now or I'll pop a blood vessel in my brain.

    Wow. Did you notice that members of the Walmart family (Walton) make up half of the top ten wealthiest people? People. Please stop shopping there.

    Excuse me, but as far as I'm concerned that $50 billion belongs to all of us. All of us who purchased microsoft products and then had to buy all of the upgrades due to sloppy programming. All of us who did the debugging for his product. Microsoft products should have gone to market in much better condition. Lotus spreadsheet was better but Gates cornered the market and took away choice and competition. He ain't no hero in my book.

    Your right! Must be nice to just get millions of dollars for being born. Gosh, I definitely will stay away from Walmart as much as possible. What a shame.

    Jesus, too bad it doesn't keep him from doing those weird commercials with Jerry Seinfeld. I hate seeing Jerry Seinfeld do that….it makes me sad.

    He has NOT held the top for the past 15 years STRAIGHT! Warren Buffet beat him out either last year or the year before. Gates had around $57 billion and Buffet had $60 billion.
