That list is old anyway, the richest man in the world is Carlos Slim Helui (sp), he owns most of the Mexican stock market. Search "Carlos Slim", his story is pretty interesting.

Uhh, wrong. That's the current list. Gates and Buffet are by far the richest men in the US.

Uhh, your WRONG.
Try reading a little before you tell someone they are wrong.

But just in case you don't want to read here it is:
World's richest person
On 8th August 2007, Fortune magazine reported that Carlos Slim had overtaken Bill Gates as the world's richest man. Carlos Slim's estimated fortune soared to US$59 billion, based on the value of his public holdings at the end of July. Microsoft founder Bill Gates' net worth was estimated to be at least US$58 billion.[1]

On 4th August 2007, The Wall Street Journal ran a cover story profiling Slim. The article said, "While the market value of his stake in publicly traded companies could decline at any time, at the moment he is probably wealthier than Bill Gates".[3]

Forbes has not updated its calculations of billionaire fortunes. It does not plan to recalculate Carlos Slim Helú's wealth until next year.[4]

On the 29th March 2007, Carlos Slim Helú surpassed Warren Buffett as the world's second richest person with an estimated Net Worth of US$53.1 billion compared to Buffett's US$52.4 billion.[5]

According to the Wall Street Journal, Carlos Slim Helú credits part of his ability to discover investment opportunities early to the writings of his friend, futurist author Alvin Toffler
