There's Someone Richer than Bill Gates...

and he is Mexican!


Via: mashable.com


Carlos Slim Helú



Net worth: $67.8 billionCompany: Telmex, América Móvil, Grupo Carso
What? Telecommunications are IT. The fact that Carlos Slim may not be as known worldwide as some other people on this list doesn’t mean he doesn’t pack 67.8 billion dollars. Add Rupert Murdoch’s wealth to that of Bill Gates and they still barely overtake Carlos, and that says a lot. If you wonder how he got here so fast, it’s due to his company América Móvil’s stock jumping a whopping 27% in the second quarter of 2007.

    The richest man in the world is a Mexican.

    I always thought Mexican's worked harder than other people out there. But I can only imagine that Carlos built his fortune off the sweat and backs of his own people. Paying them less than minimum wage.

  2. According to Wikipedia, he is a philanthropic man:

    "In the year 2000, Carlos Slim Helú organized the Fundación del Centro Histórico de la Ciudad de México A.C. (Mexico City Historic Downtown Foundation), whose objective is to revitalize and rescue Mexico City's historic downtown, for more people to live, work and find entertainment in this area. He is Chairman of the Executive Committee for the Restoration of the Historic Center since the year 2001.

    Additionally, as part of his philanthropic work, he heads the Latin America Development Fund project.'
