Forbes' list of the world's wealthy has named Warren Buffett the richest person on the planet, surpassing his friend and philanthropic partner Bill Gates who had held the title for 13 consecutive years.

The American investor and philanthropist is worth an estimated $62 billion, up $10 billion from a year ago thanks to surging prices of Berkshire Hathaway stock, according to Forbes magazine's annual ranking of the world's billionaires.

Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, is now ranked as the world's third richest person. At $58 billion, his net worth is up $2 billion from a year ago. Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helu was named the world's second richest man, with a net worth of around $60 billion, up $11 billion since last March.

..........................Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, age 23, has been named the youngest billionaire in history.   Shocked

If they donated all their cashish to the US gubmint, it would knock off 45% of our national debt.

I was reading that list last night, and was surprised at the number that started nothing*.  Inspiring at the least.
