For the past five years, the top position of the richest man in the world has been dominated by three personalities. These are Warren Buffet, Carlos Slim and the most famous Bill Gates. Bill Gates has been consistent as the top richest man in the world for the past few years. Thanks to his invention of Microsoft application for bringing him the wealth.
However, the latest list of the richest man in the world is different because Bill Gates is not dominating the top position. The reason why Bill Gates is not the richest man in the world anymore is not because of the competing company which is Apple. We are all aware that Steve Jobs has been doing very well in the innovation of their latest applications making it a threat to the Microsoft company. But it has nothing to do with Gates wealth, the main reason is because of his charity works. Gates had given away more than one third of his money Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This foundation focuses on global health and development and U.S. education.
Anyway, getting the top spot as the richest man in the world is not a competition after all. Maybe it is high time for Bill Gates to give way to new billionaires out there. What he did is very inspiring for the youth. It is not all about the fame, it is not all about the wealth, it is not all about the honor, it is all about influencing other people with what you can give. And it just so happened that Bill Gates have the wealth to save other people, so he gave it away.
