"2009 will be remembered by millions of ordinary people as the year they lost their job, their house, or the prospect of an education. For the rich, however, it was a bonanza. The world's billionaires saw their wealth grow by 50 percent last year, and their ranks swell to 1011, from 793, according to the latest Forbes list of billionaires. The combined net worth of these 1011 individuals increased to $3.6 trillion, up $1.2 trillion from the year before. On average, each billionaire had his or her wealth increase by $500 million. Four hundred and three billionaires reside in the United States. They constitute just 0.00014 percent of the country's total population, but control 8 percent of the national wealth. Each of these individuals holds over 300 million times more wealth than the average US resident. The list included 21 hedge fund managers, who as a group more than made up for whatever losses they incurred in 2008. Some of them, including James Simons, John Arnold, and George Soros, raked in profits during both the collapse and the market recovery. Topping the list of wealthiest hedge fund managers was John Paulson, at $32 billion. Paulson made billions in 2008 by betting that the housing market would collapse, and billions more through the stock market recovery of 2009. Only one of the 21 hedge fund managers on last year's Forbes list fell off. This was Raj Rajaratnam of Galleon Group, who was arrested last year on charges of insider trading. Hedge fund managers ...
Forbes' Steven Bertoni explains the move: This year, Zuckerberg, 26, added $4.9 billion to his fortune-vaulting to #35 on the Forbes 400 with an estimated fortune of $6.9 billion. Why the jump? Recent private equity investments in Facebook valued the firm at around $23 billion-more than triple its 2009 value of $7 billion. Illiquid private shares in secondary markets point to an even richer valuation. Jobs has a net worth of $6.1 billion-$1 billion higher than 2009-placing him at # 42 in the list of America's richest. The release of the rankings coincides with buzz that Zuckerberg plans to donate $100 million to help ailing Newark schools (More here). Zuckerberg and Jobs are the eighth and ninth richest tech figures on the list, behind Microsoft giants such as Bill Gates, Paul Allen, and Steve Ballmer. Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page are still billions ahead of Facebook and Apple's CEOs, with an estimated net worth of $15 billion each. See the full Forbes 400 here, or check out the top 7 richest techies, as ranked by Forbes, in the slideshow below. For details on their net worth, visit Forbes.
Forbes ranks Sri Lanka high in its Business List September 14, 2010 The Forbes magazine has ranked Sri Lanka high in its list of best countries in the world to do business. Sri Lanka ranks above China (90th), Philippines (91st), Russia (97th) and many of the South American nations. Being at the 83rd place, Sri Lanka is second only to India (77th) in South Asia. 'President Rajapaksa's re-election in 2010 means that the Government of Sri Lanka will likely continue its more stable economic approach, that seeks to reduce poverty by steering investment to disadvantaged areas, developing small and medium enterprises, promoting agriculture, and expanding the already enormous civil service'. The Forbes magazine pointed out that the end of the war and the IMF loan restored investors' confidence. 'The Sri Lankan stock market gained over 100% in 2009, one of the best performing markets in the world. Among other resons cited are the official foreign reserves improved to more than $5 billion by November 2009, providing over 6 months of imports cover'. The Forbes magazine categorized 128 nations on the basis of property rights, technology, corruption, personal freedom, red tape, investor protection and stock market performance. Denmark tops the list, followed by Hong Kong in the second place, New Zealand in third, Canada in fourth and Singapore in the fifth place. Out of the 128 countries listed, Forbes ranks Pakistan at 92nd place while Bangladesh at 109th and Vietnam at 118th. Syria ...

Forbes just released their list of the Top Earning Talking Heads for 2010. No surprise that talk show host and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey tops the list of 13 people, having earned 315 Million dollars between June 2009 and June 2010. According to Forbes, most of her fortune comes from ventures other than her television show, like the Oprah Magazine, website, radio channel, and Harpo Production Company. Oprah may be number one, but she is one of only 3 women on the list of 13 Top Earners. The other women on the list are Ellen DeGeneres and Judge Judy. Ryan Seacrest, who reportedly earned 51 Million this year, is the youngest member of this elite club, at only 35 years old. The next person closest in age to Seacrest is Glenn Beck, age 46 who pulled in 35 million dollars.

dubaisession.com Profile Shaikh Ahmad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Shaikh Ahmad was considered to be the one of the worlds youngest business executives and ranked 27th on the 2009 Forbes list of the worlds most powerful people •By Abdulla Rasheed, Abu Dhabi Editor •Published: 17:10 March 30, 2010 Abu Dhabi: Born in 1971, Shaikh Ahmad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan was the younger brother of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and considered to be a discrete person who was rarely exposed to the media. He was the incumbent managing director of Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (Adia) the worlds biggest sovereign wealth fund, which was established in 1976. He was one of the key driving forces behind Adias main deals, and the authority hit the headlines when it acquired a 4.9% stake (estimated to be worth $7.5 billion) in Citigroup. Adia is believed to have assets worth between $500-$700 billion, but Shaikh Ahmad or the authority never confirmed Adias asset size. Shaikh Ahmad was considered to be the one of the worlds youngest business executives and ranked 27th on the 2009 Forbes list of the worlds most powerful people. He was also the chairman of the Board of Trustee of Zayed Fund for Charitable and Humanitarian Works. The rumours that circulate occasionally about Adia planning takeover bids or looking to buy controlling stakes in one company or another are invariably a case of mistaken identity, he said in the interview published in German business daily Handelsblatt ...

Forbes Magazine named drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman — a fugitive reputed to be hiding in the mountains of northern Mexico — to its list of the 67 "World's Most Powerful People" on Wednesday. At No. 41 on the list, Guzman is ahead of Oprah Winfrey and presidents like France's Nicolas Sarkozy and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. Forbes noted Guzman's profession as "drug trafficker" on the list published Wednesday on its Web site. "This ranking is intended to be the beginning of a conversation, not the final word,""Do despicable criminals like billionaire Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman ... belong on this list at all?"Last March, Mexican officials decried Forbes' decision to include Guzman on its list of the world's billionaires, saying that wrongly compared him to legitimate businessmen. At the time, Forbes' estimated Guzman's fortune at $1 billion. The office of the presidency said it had no immediate reaction to his inclusion on Wednesday's list.
Choice between Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen Passats, to judge Kenyan ministers austerity The Benz is to be replaced with Volkswagen Passats, which not only cost about two-thirds, the price of a new Benz in Kenya, but are also cheaper to run and maintain. But this being Kenya, controversy has now arisen over why VW Passats and not any other brand, this comes only a few days to the deadline, November 30 of handing over the Benz in exchange of a Passat. Though a number of ministers have handed over the Benz for Passats, still a good number have sworn to cling on the expensive cars insisting that the whole VW issue was not transparent. The bone of contention now remains why all the 126 new Passats came from a single dealer, CMC Motors, which has the Volkswagen license for Kenya and also enjoys strong political connections. The government stands accused why it never ever issued a competitive tender for the cars but this to many Kenyans couldn't be a serious issue, to us this is a delaying tactic by those who do not want to leave their expensive cars, they do not pay taxes yet the taxpayer has to cough millions of dollars for their maintenance so we would be more than happy if first they handed over the Benz and argue from that point may be we would listen then.

Sep 29 2009 6:52 AM EDT 50 Cent Hangs Tough As The #9 Hottest MC In The Game Despite no official album, Fif has stayed hot with mixtapes, Web presence and publicity. By Shaheem Reid www.mtv.com Flame Thrower: 50 Cent 2009 Rank: 9 Previous Rankings: 2007 (#8); 2008 (#6) Why He's Hot: Over the past year, 50 Cent chose not to roam on one of his main predatory terrains, the Billboard charts, by continuing to hold back the release of his long-awaited Before I Self-Destruct LP. Instead, the G-Unit General began to fully realize the potential of another region in which he'd already planted his flag: the Internet. Musically, yes, 50 has had a couple of missteps. There was an obvious disconnect between 50, Interscope and the fans with his records "Get Up" (released late last year) and "I Get It In," but on the street level, where 50 is in total control of when and how the music comes out, it was all harmony. 50 and his camp thrived underground. Even though they've collectively sold tens of millions of albums worldwide, the Unit still stayed on top of the mixtape game. Banks and Yayo have repped the G-Unit brand with incessant unofficial releases (Banks' 4-30-09 double CD and Yayo's Swine Flu series chief among them), while 50 saluted the streets with mixtapes of his own: Forever King and the War Angel LP heated up the summer with a taste of throwback homages and up-to-date urban guerrilla warfare, respectively. His sole mission on the latter was to bring hardcore hip-hop to the ...
