Top Ten Global Business Leaders

Top Ten Global Business Leaders

20 Nov

I’ve written numerous times before about global business leaders, but I wanted to check (out of my own  curiosity) how that has changed in the seven (7) years since I last wrote on the topic (in 2007).
Here is the latest Forbes Billionaires list:

10
Name:
Bernard Arnault
Source of wealth: LVMH Moët Hennessy • Louis Vuitton S.A
Net worth:
$29B 
Country:
France      .

9
Name: Liliane Bettencourt  
Source of wealth:
L’Oreal 
 Net worth: $30B 
Country:
France                                                                                           

8
Li Ka-shing                  Hutchison Whampoa/self-made                       $31B                                Hong Kong

7 David Koch                     Koch Industries                                           $34B                                   US

6 Charles Koch                  Koch Industries                                           $34B                                   US

5 Larry Ellison                    Oracle                                                        $43B                                   US

3 Amancio Ortega              Inditex/ Zara                                                 $57B                                 Spain

2 Bill Gates                        Microsoft                                                     $72B                                   US

1 Carlos Slim Helu               Telecom                                                      $73B                                    Mexico

 

 With all of this cash out there floating around, I have to ask..
” Are we really this selfish? Does a person or even a company need this much money??? Poverty could be eliminated, yet, these elite continue giving money to bankers and politicians to fund more and more unnecessary wars and rumors of war! Where has our humanity gone, seriously?”

Inspiring Words to live by:
“Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
~ Henry Ford
