Meet The World's Richest Man
We first became familiar with Mukesh Ambani when we saw the picture of his planned billion-dollar skyscraper home. It turns out that Ambani, who we already knew as the richest man in India is now said to be the richest man in the entire world skating past Carlos Slim, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and fellow builder of blockbuster homes, Lakshmi Mittal. BloggingStocks took a look at the actions of the top five reporting that Gates and Buffett are also the world's biggest philanthropists and that Slim has also pledged a desire to set up a $10 billion foundation. Mittal is busy buying up the world's steel production. Ambani is the chairman of Reliance Industries and his businesses include petrochemicals, oil refining, textiles, retail and biotechnology. Thus far his efforts on behalf of his fellow man just might be limited to subsidizing the 600 staff his new home is said to require.
