Mexican telecommunications mogul Carlos Slim has topped Microsoft's Bill Gates as the richest man in the world.
According to CNN, the latest numbers are $67.8 billion for Slim and a mere $59.2 billion for Gates.
Back in march Slim overtook Warren Buffet and became the second richest man in the world. His fortune was then estimated at $53.1 billion, compared with Warren Buffett's $52.4 billion.
Is it just me or is it really a bit strange if someone makes 15 billion in three months even if they are behind the biggest telecom company in Southern America ? Never mind, I didn't crunch these numbers and if they're good enough for CNN, they're good enough for us.
