A great "victory" for Bill Gates. After 4 years, he is again the richest man in the world

Bill Gates returned to the 1st place in the list of Forbes magazine with the wealthiest people in the world, after 4 years. With a property that reaches the 76 billion dollars, he leaves behind the tycoon of telecommunications Carlos Slim, whose personal wealth reaches the 72 billion dollars.


What brought Bill Gates in the first place again? The very success of Microsoft's stock the past year, although Gates revenue of the shares of the company which has created, represent just one-third of his income. The investors of stock markets in 2013 thought about Microsoft as a good investment and Gates saw the result in his wallet, though his role in the company has dramatically changed.

As you know already Gates is no longer president of the company, but he is still technical advisor only for the new CEO, Satya Nadella, and soon he will not be the largest shareholder of Microsoft. Information of economic cycles say that the other CEO, Steve Ballmer, will soon outstrip Bill Gates in the number of shares. Will he overtake him in the list of Forbes magazine? We do not think so. For 2013, Steve Ballmer was in the 36th place in the list with the wealthiest people in the world, with his personal property to be valued at 19.3 billion dollars. But he has a long way to go to the first place. Even to overcome other rich men of technology, as Larry Ellison of Oracle, the founders of Google, Carl Ikhan or Mark Zuckerberg.
