Asset Rich - Cash Poor the Motto of Donald Trump. These people are not Hidden, just not well known. If you are looking for hidden billionaires or even hidden millionaires you aren't going to find them in a youtube video.

*seriously* you need to do a segment on the Rothschild's! There are currently 195 countries on earth, the Rothschild's control banking in *193* of them! Vast real estate, wineries, arms contracts, its staggering and thus family *IS* the poster child for old money, 350hrs & counting.....

The title should have named as billionaires most of the Americans never heard of because speaking of Mukesh Ambani it's like more than a billion people know him and same for Huateng ma in China.

True story, my best friend is the heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune and I can promise you've never heard of him, he and his family are VERY low pro

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.

All those billions buy a lot of fortune cookies. Get it?... No, it's not racist!

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
DenseAlloy (8 months ago)
10:19 $20 million sounds like a lot. But he's worth $70 billion. He gave .02857143% of his net worth. It's awesome he did it but $70 billion is just hard to grasp.

bernard is NOT the 3rd richest person. warren buffet is.
Tommy Kelly (8 months ago)
I can't say I'm jealous of them, but I also can't say I respect any of them. Most of their wealth is based on the mere luck, not extraordinary mental talents.

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.

such a stupid list. these are extremely well known billionaires. how about you do some research and look into Trusts and their likely benefactors
Johnny Pereira (8 months ago)
Hard to believe John Paul DeJoria isn’t on this list.

No African billionaires on the list? The only continent that is left out....
Lenard Segnitz (8 months ago)
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.
Terry Weaver (8 months ago)
I don't admire these "people" and I have ambition. Ambition to over through the capitalist class and bring about communism.
Lenard Segnitz (8 months ago)
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.

No Rothschild' s?

Plus they aren't entirely unknown. The list was of mostly unknown billionaires.
vizionthing (8 months ago)
Lenard Segnitz what a sound and concise reply!
Lenard Segnitz (8 months ago)
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.

Not a Saud in sight either, and they have a country named after them.

A person has a $1,000,000,000 but spends some of their money are they still Billionaires or are they Millionaires?
Do the math...
Void Echo (8 months ago)
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.
Tom Frazier (8 months ago)
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.
B. Tisdale (8 months ago)
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.
VipeITup (8 months ago)
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
vizionthing (8 months ago)
pretty nonsensical - nope probably many houses with many floors, and income will be sweet for all the hard work put in - so it looks like both your statement and question fail on all points.

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

5 more years and this whole list will be filled with Chinese.
Abhay Sharma (8 months ago)
Americans are getting triggered by this comment, They often can't accept any other country succeeding in any terms by theirs.
Lenard Segnitz (8 months ago)
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.

Meh. They said the same thing about Japan in the early 90s.

Shantanu Shekhar (8 months ago)
No way is Mukesh on this list.. Pls see his shambolic home n tell me he wants to be discreet
Shantanu Shekhar (8 months ago)
@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. 🙏
Jonathan (8 months ago)
*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
Shantanu Shekhar (8 months ago)
@Jonathan I wouldn't and the guy has the richest personal home in the world. All I m saying is amongst these luminaries he clearly does not belong. Odd one out by far. Not my fault if u don't know..
Jonathan (8 months ago)
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.....
Shantanu Shekhar (8 months ago)
@Jonathan I bet not as much as this guy.. N still he is not discreet in any sense of the word. Just cos he is Indian does not mean it is discreet.

Inna Te'o (8 months ago)
These are all tied up in assets. How much do they have in the bank.. Me : 0.50
T Hyde (8 months ago)
Does it matter, the fact is money is all fiat these days, so isn't production capacity more valuable?
Inna Te'o (8 months ago)
@Dakota M Thanks for clearing that up!!!
Dakota M (8 months ago)
Having money in the bank is one if the worst things you can do with it. Not only does it not make you more money but every day it is actually worth less due to inflation.
