The rich get poorer and the poor get poorer!

We all know that this recession is affecting most of World in negative way but how does it affect the rich and wealthy Globally? Well Forbes has released its report on the world richest people and it goes a little something like this: The average net worth of billionaires is $3 billion which is a 23% drop in a year's period. Also the world only (ha only) has 793 billionaires as compared to 1,125 from last year.

In America, it looks as if the billionaires are moving back to the top as global dominance and Bill Gates has moved to the number 1 spot again over taking William Buffett. On the bad side Gates lost 18 billion and Buffett lost at total of 25 billion.

So America we are all in this together the rich, middle class and poor and hopefully we can all work to get out of this together government, big business and small business soon!

  1. William Gates III
