Bill Gates is now only the third richest man with a net worth of $58 billion. Mexican telecom mogul, Carlos Slim HelÃº, trumps Gates by $2 billion.
Had Microsoft not made an unsolicited bid for Yahoo!, Gates would have kept the number one spot, which is now filled by Warren Buffet.
Naturally, the list had no shortage of Andreiâ€™s, Sergeiâ€™s or Dimitriâ€™s. However, it only places three Russian billionaires in the top 20.
Oleg Deripaska, Roman Abramovich, and Alexei Mordashov all share the title of â€œself-madeâ€ and each have made their fortune in aluminum.
The list is also includes several high school dropouts, and a few individuals who were once homeless. The youngest billionaire is 23 year-old Mark Zuckerberg (facebook).
