There are some changes in the new list of Forbes richest Americans. 26-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, overtook in the ranking of Steve Jobs himself! The irony here is that a year ago Zuckerberg did not even make the list of billionaires, and Apple was founded eight years before its birth.
Now Zuckerberg's fortune is estimated at $ 6.9 billion (35th place), and Steve Jobs - $ 6.1 billion (42nd place, he owns 7% of Disney Corporation). In fairness, let's say that Jobs’s condition is more realistic, he can cash out his shares right now, and Zuckerberg’s share on Facebook has to be searched for a buyer, especially at that price, because the shares are not traded on the open market. And the state of Jobs today could have been twice as great if, by foolishness, had not got rid of Apple stocks and options in 2003.
There are no more than 36 years old in a hundred more rich people. The next in age are 37-year-old Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who share 11th place with a capital of $ 15 billion each. ')
Heading the rating, as usual, Bill Gates ($ 54 billion), then Warren Buffett ($ 45 billion) and Larry Ellison ($ 27 billion, Oracle).
