Now all he'll have to comfort himself is his billions of dollars.

That one of the guys ahead of him has investments in oil. With the way the world is getting raped (without justification) on gas / petrol prices lately, and oil companies having their MOST PROFITABLE year ever last year, I'd expect to see some of the world's richest people keep getting richer as they jack up the price of oil for no reason.

No duh...the guy's been "unemployed" for several months now. Talk about kicking a man when he's down. :p

This is true,

Leave the poor guy alone!

Bubble up

Lord Anubis3969d ago

it's been a while since he was the riches man. That's why he is the third richest. The Mexican guy dethroned him a while ago.

MetalProxy3969d ago (Edited 3969d ago )

Mexican guy?

Lord Anubis3969d ago (Edited 3969d ago )

Carlos Slim, a Mexican telecoms expert.

yeah i remember this, but who's Warren Buffet?

Diugu3969d ago

Have you been living in a bubble?

You don't know who the megainvestor Warren Buffet is?

The one who said the following sentences:

“Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.”
“There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.”
"The first rule is not to lose. The second rule is not to forget the first rule.”

The dude is a friggin genius.
As a small investor.. I really admire him.

Warren Buffet is the man who donated most of his fortune to double the size of Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. He's also one of the most respected financial minds in the world and his annual speech/meeting attract more than 5000 people. I also love this man cause he said he would donate most of his money because what's he gonna do with it when he dies. A great person to say the least.

Yeah, it's been a while since Bill was the world's richest man. Misleading title.
