Billionaires are not just people who make money, they are also kinda rock stars. We watch their TED talks, see them simply be amazing, and read their books about how we can be, too. Even if you have the teensiest bit of ambition, we bet you admire at least one of the famous billionaires, like Richard Branson, founder and President of Virgin and ultimate adventure fanatic.

Really, you didn't think we knew who the founder of Google is? [email protected] Ok, you may not know such things but don't deflect your short-comings onto others. Makes you seem like an ignorant, twat, hack. Not even going to bother watching past this fail.
I'm not sure Hui Ka Yan appreciates being called the Chinese Donald Trump these days, especially given the covfefe's dumb trade war with China. Though it would be somewhat hilarious if he opened a casino in Atlantic City, called it Hui Taj Mahal, and it was wildly successful.
Ever heard about Prince Moosa Bin Shamsher, richest man in Bangladesh, arm dealer and founder of Datco, the company supplying poor rural Bangladeshi workers to Middle East construction industry? He is a billionaire too, offered 5 millions pounds to Tony Blair in 1995, and never wear the same suit twice. Worth the look
Thank you for rounding out the list of candidates for the guillotine. The top few, the really grotesquely ostentatious are easy to spot. It's these humble ones the coming revolution have a hard time finding and building a case against.
Isabel Dos Santos, Angola, made her fortune by having her father steal it from Angola and putting her in charge of it. Portugal is all too happy to help her pillage Angola and transfer her wealth there. But she's worth "only" $2.8 billion.
African billionaires are traitors to their continent. They got their fortunes by helping Western colonialists pillage African wealth.
This list and Forbes on-going tally make the perfect list of candidates for the guillotine.
We socialists have a couple of options. 1 - let the current system get so obscenely broken that the masses have no choice but to take up arms or starve. 2 - found worker co-operatives to show a better alternative. Both have the drawback of being temporary. The pendulum of history infuriatingly keeps swing back toward a Gilded Age decades after a world calamity to bring on socialism. Perhaps we're doomed to repeat history every 80-100 years.
Rothschild fortunes are much diminished. Yes, back in the day (1700-1800s) they were bankers to kings. Since then there loads of others in the game. There are a few Rothschilds in banking, and still worth multi-millions, but they're just run-of-the-mill investment managers now.
It's pretty common for mega-fortunes to diminish with subsequent generations. You barely hear about the Carnegies or Rockerfellers today. Lots of reasons why. Reversion to the average: the founder of the fortune is a special kind of genius/psychopath in special circumstances that later generations simply can't replicate. Competition: one great fortune attracts others into the same industry all with the goal of trying to be as rich as the first guy, but the joke's on them because the first guy got rich because he had a monopoly.
Great fortunes diminish for similar reasons why monarchies fail. The founder is a bolt of lightning, a black swan. While it's not impossible for later generations to be as brilliant or psychopathic it's really, really unlikely.
This list is disgusting. Not because of what theyv done to achieve this, but they hoard the wealth they have and never consider helping those in need, like getting out of unreasonable debt, helping to get rid of poverty, etc.
This calls to mind people who want to break people down because they are there. Billionaires with a public persona come across as jerks, even "Philanthropic" ones. If so many of the "1%" are jerkish, the same percentage of the 99% must be so.
You imply that "those in need" would use the money more responsibly than those "hoarding". I grew up in a poor, inner city environment (as far as poor goes in the U.S.), and for every family that used donations/benefits for food, schooling, etc, there were three more who used them them to buy drugs or Jordans. Obviously that's not a credited statistic, but just giving someone money because they "need" it can be entirely irresponsible.
20mil is not alot to them abort 0.5% of The wealth. The problem is even if a person wanted to give away all ther 70b tö cheerity its not that easy. They have to set up a company for it prob. Why a individual shoud not be able to own that mutch
Being anonymous is now a better option then trying to be famous online, best way is to just have a persona like some youtubers do and stay away from the public eyes
That way you can have a Normal Life plus a Persona
No they won't. The Chinese government is dedicated to infrastructure spending and alleviating poverty. Goals like these are detrimental to building individual fortunes. Sure, there are some Chinese billionaires but given the size of the Chinese economy there are a tenth as many by American standards.
+Jonathan *sitting purposeless in life.. Rambling on things cluelessly.. Pretending to be erudite while missing the point entirely *
Which is that apart from having 3 commas in his name Ambani shares naught with these People.
I really hope I don't become a fine dysfunctional tubelight like urself. Cos I cant blink away my life like that.
*watches a video about billionaires he doesnt know about*
*sees a billionaire he knows about*
"Man that guy shouldnt be on this list because i know about him forget about everyone else"
wew lad well some logic escapes you there my friend, if you dont see anything wrong with this conversation thus far then continue with life you will enjoy it alot more than me :D
You would lose that bet billionaires have ridiculous homes and properties in general...the theme for this video is not discreet but ones we've never heard of which he is for most people outside of india man lol.....
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
