Richest Man in the World

Earlier this morning after reading and replying to my business email, I hastily opened my personal email and checked if there is something important that needs my attention. As I accessed the internet, first thing I saw was the yahoo news – “World’s 2010 Billionaires” – not Bill Gates anymore, he is presently ranked as the second, the richest man in the world for 2010 is Carlos Slim Helu with $53.5 billion net worth who’s residing in Mexico.
