  • It may sound trite or silly, but it really does depend on how you define rich. I personally would much rather have good health, a faithful spouse, children who love and respect me and a satisfying occupation than a large bank balance. The richest person is the one who is the happiest, not the other way around. I agree with the conclusion of "It's a Wonderful Life," George Bailey was the richest man in Bedford Falls, even though he had no significant monetary wealth. On a specifically financial scale, all really rich people are dependent on markets for their wealth. If the market fell out of microcomputer software, Bill Gates would suddenly become worth a lot less. If he tried to sell a significant portion of his stock, it would probably dramatically devalue the stock, so just by trying to use his wealth he would degrade it. A mansion "worth" $100 million or a company "worth" $10 billion may not actually bring 10% of that if it had to be sold. Somebody out there may own enough desirable antiques and art to qualify if they all sold everything above market value at auction... but unless that person advertises his holdings and over-estimates their values, he won't show up on a list. All of the values put on the wealthiest people in the world are subject to change dramatically if they had to convert investments to cash. The value of investments changes without notice with changing market values. Today the right answer, measured by dollar value, may be Bill Gates or the king of an oil-producing country, tomorrow it may be somebody else. [ Response to feedback: I did not give one name because it may depend on what day and perhaps what time of day you try to evaluate all of a person's assets. In addition, it is not possible to accurately value all of a persons assets as I tried to explain. ]
  • Bill Gates (Microsoft) is the richest man in the world.

  • There really is no 'official' richest person in the world. This is due to many amounts of things... for example, stocks. Stocks play a massive roll in todays economy (well... they, and the banks ARE our econemy basically) and stocks change constantly, therefore you could be the richest one second... then your 2nd or 3rd in the drop of a dime.
