The World's Billionaires

Wow, according to Forbe's special report, there are over 900 billionires in the world! It's about 20% more than the previous year. Bill Gates continues to top the list for the 13th time. Indians top the list in Asia, with 36 billionires.

Although we see a rise in billionires, the question we need to ask is 'has the condition of the poor improved over the year?' I think the opposite has happened. One thing these people can do is to translate their success to more jobs, striking a balance between the rich and the poor.
