Ever Dream what you would do if you were blessed to not have to worry about money? Growing up did you believe that you would be rich and famous? As our economy continues to suffer it is harder for people to see the light at the end of the tunnel and to continue to dream. However, there are still people in our world that have achieved the dream that every one strives for. Whether they worked for their riches or it was inherited, these are the top listed people who should never have to take out a personal loan. Now we can all continue to be jealous.
The second oldest billionaire in the top five come in at number one. Carlos Slim Helu and his family are the richest family in the world with their net worth being estimated at 74 billion dollars. I am sure we could all live comfortably if not lavishly for the rest of our lives with that kind of money. Carlos resides in Mexico and is Chairman for Telmex. This simply puts means that he owns more than 200 companies. Some of the few that he controls are Saks and the New York Times.
The next guy is a self proclaimed millionaire. Bill Gates is a drop out from Harvard University and still lives in the United States. He earned his riches by developing Microsoft. A rival at times with Steve Jobs, this entrepreneur is currently taking time off and serving CO- Chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This foundation is working towards developing vaccines that will be able to help various diseases throughout the world. A fun fact about this billionaire is when he married his wife, he rented out an entire Hawaiian Island so that they could have their privacy. What a catch!
Another United States Citizen holds the number three spot in terms of net worth. This billionaire is also the oldest on our list at the age of 81. Warren Buffet is another self made billionaire. He currently resides of CEO of the company he manufactured, Berkshire Hathaway. Buffet is also known in politics for shedding light on America's taxation problems. He was the muse behind Obama's Buffet Tax. This tax proposes that no millionaires should pay less in taxes than a middle class family.
A French business man takes our next spot. Bernard Arnault serves as Chairman of Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy. While being in charge of so many high end brands, one expects this guy and his family to have great taste, especially with their clothing and champagne. He is currently the richest man in Europe.
Our final contender for people who do not need a personal loan is Larry Ellison. He also gets to boast being a self made billionaire that dropped out of college. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana and the University of Chicago. He dropped out of both universities. Proving that education isn't everything this guy owns half of a 453 foot yacht! Not bad! His stock, Oracle, seems to be surviving the economic turmoil.
