Who got richer than anyone else in 2013?
The CEO of Las Vegas Sands grew his wealth by a staggering $41 million a day.
The gambling tycoon's net worth soared $15 billion, or 68%, through Friday. He is now worth just over $37 billion, and he's climbed from the nation's 11th richest this fall to No. 5 at the moment.
Put another way, his fortune grew by a staggering $41 million a day.
Adelson added more to his fortune than any other person, thanks largely to the success of his casinos in Macau and Singapore, which led to stellar financial results. Not even canceling plans to open a Sands casino in Madrid could dampen his year.
Still not 30 years old, Zuckerberg is worth nearly $26 billion, more than double what he was worth a year ago. That means that in percentage terms, he actually beat out Adelson (though Ubiquiti Networks' (UBNT) Robert Pera has bragging rights as the American billionaire with biggest percentage gain in 2013, up 200%).
The Waltons should be ashamed of the fact that they're on this list. Especially during a time when they have the audacity to ask their customers to donate food items to their "associates in need" (Wal-Mart employees) for the holidays... DISGUSTING!
Former president Clinton helped the waltons destroy THE UNITED STATES WITH NAFTA.Don't only blame the Waltons.Look at the big picture.Republicans are just as bad too.....they're both in cahoots with each other.All they want is to get re-elected to their positions of power and their do-nothing gubberment positions.
The Wright brothers were not wealthy by the standards of these billionaires.
Yet they advanced the human race exponentially more than all those billionaires on the list put together.
Just search it and read folks, all you need to know about the number one government welfare recipient.
adelson guy was shuttling mit Romney back and forth to Israel last year.
thw Walton family made 5x as much for chines companies sucking away
the poor American ppl. by selling them cheap crap at walmart/china mart
Well that's just SUPER!
It is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into Heaven.
So good luck with that riches thing!!!!
Do they legally pay taxes or use loopholes? Eat poor people wealth. Cheaters
