Warren Buffet - the second richest man in the world in 2009 but the richest man in 2009

Top 25 Richest People in The World in 2009 vs 2008

by Roman on March 17, 2009

Here is a graph I put together using data from Forbes for 2008 and 2009 to see how much money the top 25 richest people in the world lost during the last year. All together the 25 richest people in the world lost 202.5 billion dollars in 1 year. Click on the graph for a larger image Top 25 richest people in the world in 2008 vs 2009

The billionaires who lost most money during the last year

  1. Lakshmi Mittal – 25.7 billion dollars
  2. Warren Buffett – 25.0 billion dollars
  3. Mukesh Ambani – 23.5 billion dollars
  4. Bill Gates – 18 billion dollars

The only billionaire who made money during last year

The only billionaire in this list who made money during the last year was Michael Bloomberg.

He is the current mayor of New York and the owner of Bloomberg financial software services company. The reason he made 4.5 billion dollars last year was because the stock market has been crazy during the last months and his company Bloomberg L.P is the largest financial news delivering company in the world. Bloomberg sells financial data and news to banks, stock brokers, analysts and news agencies.

When the economy is doing badly he has a lot more news to sell!

Most people don’t realize this, but it is the truth. Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are not the richest men in the world, the Rockefellers and the Rothschild’s are. They are literally trillionaires. The Rothschild’s are worth an estimated 100 trillion dollars or more. They are the higher ups in the Illuminati who are the main ones controlling world affairs. The Boule is the people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and others who take the heat for the super powerful men behind the scenes. The world is not really what it seems. There is more or less a dichotomy of reality. There is the official reality that most people think they know, and then there is the truth.

Hi!
I enjoy reading your posts, but have noticed that you haven’t posted anything in a while, I was wondering if you are going to post anything else in the future.

Thanks!

Roman April 17, 2009 at 9:22 am

Thanks for your comment Guillermo!
I am definitely posting more good stuff!
I’ve been away for a while and the blog has suffered but I’ll try and get a new article out every couple of days from now on!

If you wish, you could write me a guest post and I’ll post it!

emmanuel April 16, 2009 at 4:29 pm

Dear sir, i am happy to get this opportunity to write to you, i request you kindly to help me in financial matters i am a poor people and i have no financial capacity to sustain my family and suffering from a disease which can be detected in home country (RWANDA) EXCEPT to go for further treatment in India.

Dear sir any assistance from you will be highly appreciated

Roman April 17, 2009 at 9:12 am

Nice for you to read blogs on how to get rich! I think that this is a step in the right direction for you!

bodie July 16, 2009 at 1:26 am

the comment on why u dont understand the ceo of exxon is worth less than bill gates.

U truly are a retard. make the effort to understand the difference employee and employee

then perhaps you might gain understanding!

bollywood news April 22, 2009 at 10:40 am

A quick search on wikipedia I quickly find the list of billionaires, but I don’t buy it. I truly believe there’s secret SUPER-rich individuals in the world that are no where on that list. I don’t see how Bill Gates makes more money than the CEO of Exxon. And I don’t understand how IKEA is more profitable than Citigroup! Yet Rockefeller and JP Morgan are no where to be found on this list!

ROMAN

I AM SO HAPPY TO PUT IN AN EMAIL ON THIS SITE. I WISH TO REQUEST FOR FIANCIAL ASSISTANCE FROM ANY WELL TO DO PERSON AMOUNTING TO USD1,000.00. I AM A MOTHER OF FOUR. MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN JOBLESS FOR OVER THREE YEARS. MY SALARY IS TOO SMALL TO LOOK AFTER THE CHILDREN. MY FIRST BORN SON IS DOING SECOND YEAR OF SECONDARY SCHOOL BUT I HAVE NO SCHOOL FEES FOR HIM. MY ELECTRICITY HAS BEEN CUT OFF AND I AM AFRAID THEY MAY CUT OFF THE WATER TOO DUR TO NONPAYMENT OF BILLS. I HAVE SO MUCH DEBT TO BE PAID AND DON’T KNOW WHERE TO GO. PLEASE IF THERE IS ANYONE TRUSTWORTHY WHO COULD ASSIST ME, I WILL VERY MUCH APPRECIATE. THE LITTLE I WILL GET I WILL INVEST INTO A SMALL BUSINESS SO THAT I SHOULD NEVER HAVE THE SAME PROBLEMS AGAIN. I KNOW YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PASS MY MAIL TO NECESSARY PEOPLE. I KNOW THERE ARE STILL GOOD PEOPLE REMAINING IN THIS WORLD. TAKE THIS AS GENUINE REQUEST AND NOT SCAM. I DO NOT WANT TO COMMIT SUICIDE TO RUN AWAY FROM ALL THESE PROBLEMS.

They lost more this year than most people will ever make in their lives. Amazing how wealth is concentrated.

QUESTRADE COUPONS - All Coupons, discounts, promo codes, offers, and reviews May 30, 2009 at 4:47 am

Give them credit they figured out how to amass money (err. most seems to have inherited it but whateva). It clearly shows that when you get rich it is easier to stay that way.

Car Insurance Phi June 9, 2009 at 1:20 pm

I’m not saying that they don’t deserve the praise, merely pointing out that the top 1% hold the most wealth in the world. You don’t think they’re all self-made do you?

IKECHI CHARLES ISINGUZO June 25, 2009 at 8:09 am

My name is ikechi Charles Isinguzo; I am a boy of 29yrs old from Nigeria, a native of Ibo. I was recently relieved of my banking job.

As an upcoming leader I had dreams of making my country Nigeria a better place to be and also re-branding the image of the country. This I wanted to achieve through my pet projects- Casting Agency (Monny Lee is the only African who is into this kind of business), Entertainment (By shooting the first Nigeria Film and not home videos), publishing my two books (8 keys to success and unlocking your potentials). You could agree me with me that these are large dreams and if I do not stand up to the challenge, these dreams might not see the light of the day.

As a person, there are times when we face challenges or limitation that we cannot remove on our own. When some people hit those lids, they give up, and they stop growing. That’s the beginning of the end for their career. But a few of them, those with the courage and the humility to learn, get together with leaders who are able to be lid lifters in their lives. That is my case, I see you as my lid lifter.
“Remember that the telltale sign of a great leader is
Not what he has accomplished on his own but what
He has been able to accomplish through people. That
Comes only as a result of connection”. John .C. Maxwell

Sir, please do not see me as a scam or daydreamer. But see it as another opportunity of sowing into millions of people lives living in this part of the world through me.

I will be grateful if this letter is giving an utmost audience.

Thanks.

Oh man that’s a lot of money. I could live off just a tiny little fraction of that money and probably be able to feed all of the people in my country.

As the world is trying to eliminate the terrorists in the Waziristan, I have resolved to provide an opportunity to the youth of the area to get some basic learning skills and up-to-date knowledge to shun extremism and live in peace. Is there anybody who may be able to heal their wounds and make them happy by supporting my Bannu Academy of Learning?

I need an assistance of US$ 1 million only to realize my dream of providing my people an opportunity to develop and enhance their basic learning skills so that they are able to participate effectively in their communities for development while turning aside from terrorism and harsh approaches.

This is indeed a project for the world to see. I am fully aware that there are people and organizations around the world who care much for others.

The people of Bannu need you now!

Waiting for a reply!

I am sure if you asked 1 of the 25 rich people on the list you would get your 1 million dollars.
You seem intelligent and believe in what you do.
I am sorry but the readers of this blog on myself simply do not have that kind of money!

Your answers are good and interesting. They teach a lesson to those who try to misuse this wonderful opportunity. If someone is really in great need, of course, there is nothing wrong in helping such people. You have to find ways and means to help them or find donors or few individuals. May God bless you abundantly and good luck in the year 2010.

The seat of a shadow government can be located London, England. Many people believe the United States of America received independence from England after signing of the Declaration of Independence. The truth of the matter is, not only was the Declaration of Independence a farce, we are still a British colony like many other parts of the world. Everything that goes on in the United States from the economy to fashion is dictated by the British. It always has been. Most people don’t realize this, but it is the truth. Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are not the richest men in the world, the Rockefellers and the Rothschild’s are. They are literally trillionaires. The Rothschild’s are worth an estimated 100 trillion dollars or more. They are the higher ups in the Illuminati who are the main ones controlling world affairs.
