Bill Gates becomes world’s richest person again

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has recaptured the title of world’s richest person with estimated fortune of $78.5 billion.
The 58-year-old tycoon’s fortune increased by $15.8 billion last year, according to the index, as shares of Microsoft, the world’s largest software maker, rose 40 per cent.
Gates regained top spot from Mexican investor Carlos Slim, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, a daily ranking of the world’s 300 wealthiest individuals.
Gates’s fortune has also benefited from a rally in stock holdings that include the Canadian National Railway and sanitising products maker Ecolab, which rose 34 per cent and 45 per cent respectively.

I think its pretty much safe to say he's in the 0.01 percent of that group. Not even the Donald in in his stratosphere.

They forgot to count Warren Buffett's 200 trillion in undisclosed Swiss bank accounts.

Microsoft was co-founded by both Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Allen's book, "Idea Man" may be worth a read. I don't think he was referring to Gates as the idea man.

Possibly Skype and Google infringement revenues are paying off ?
At first I though Mr. Buffett had passed away it's known he's supposed to leave a boat load of dough to Gates
