Where are the Billionaires

September 12, 2018

A recent report by Forbes mapped out the worlds billionaires. This exclusive club has 1,587 members of which 512 are in the US and Canada. Asia has grown to #2 with 403 and Europe third with 343. Latin America, Russia, and other countries round out the list. I find this impressive that the relatively young America leads the list and shows the power of a nation founded on ideas where multiple cultures come together as one. Notice the lack of members from repressive countries that experience fighting between separate groups within the same territory are vastly underrepresented.
