Forbes presenta lista de las personas más ricas del mundo

 

Bill Gates ha encabezado 18 veces este ránking, que se elabora anualmente desde hace tres décadas y que este año incluye a 2.043 personas -una cifra récord-, todas ellas con una fortuna superior a los 1.000 millones de dólares.

En la lista, un referente habitual para conocer cuáles son las personas más adineradas del planeta, el segundo lugar es para el magnate financiero estadounidense Warren Buffett, dueño de la firma Berkshire Hathaway, quien posee un patrimonio de más de 75.600 millones de dólares.

Buffett desplazó en ese puesto al español Amancio Ortega, accionista mayoritario de la firma textil Inditex, que ocupa ahora el cuarto lugar, dos puestos por debajo del ránking del año pasado, con unas propiedades por valor de 71.300 millones de dólares.

El fundador de Amazon y dueño del diario The Washington Post, Jeff Benzos, fue el que más dinero ganó este año, lo que le hizo subir dos puestos y situarse en la tercera posición, al incrementar su fortuna en 27.600 millones de dólares.

La quinta posición es para el fundador de Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, con unos 56.000 millones de dólares, 11.400 millones más de lo que se calcula que tenía el año pasado.

A este le siguen el mexicano Carlos Slim, un magnate del sector de telecomunicaciones, con una fortuna estimada de 54.500 millones de dólares; Larry Ellison, de la firma tecnológica Oracle, con 52.200 millones, y los hermanos Charles y David Koch, del grupo que lleva su nombre (48.300 millones).

En el top 20 también se encuentran el exalcalde de Nueva York, Michael Bloomberg, con una fortuna de 47.500 millones de dólares, y el cofundador de Google, Sergey Brin, con 39.800 millones de dólares.

A la edición de este año se suman 195 personas al ránking de Forbes, con China como la principal nación que los aporta (76 nuevas), seguida de Estados Unidos (25), India (13) y Alemania (5).

Por primera vez ingresaron al grupo de las veinte personas más ricas del mundo la vietnamita Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, dueña de la aerolínea VietJet Air, y el mexicano Juan Francisco Beckmann Vidal, presidente del fabricante de tequila José Cuervo.

De todas las personas de la lista, hay 227 mujeres, de las cuales 74 son estadounidenses, 28 alemanas y 23 chinas.

La mujer más rica del mundo es la francesa Liliane Bettencourt, del grupo de cosmética L’Oréal, que ocupa el puesto 14 del ránking general de Forbes, con una fortuna calculada en 39.500 millones de dólares.

Por países, Estados Unidos es la nación con el mayor número de multimillonarios, con un total de 565, seguido de China (319), Alemania (114), India (101) y Rusia (96).

En la lista figura también el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, que ocupa el puesto 544, con una fortuna de unos 3.500 millones de dólares que proviene de más de 19 países (el 85 % de su patrimonio se encuentra en EE.UU.).

Los bienes que incluye Forbes para elaborar su lista tienen en cuenta el valor de sus acciones, y este año apunta que el alza en los mercados de valores y el aumento en los precios de las materias primas, entre otros factores, han contribuido a una mayor creación de riqueza en todo el mundo.

El valor total de las 2.043 personas incluidas eleva las fortunas de todos ellos hasta los 7,67 billones de dólares, de las cuales 1.371 personas fueron artífices de su éxito y 672 heredaron su fortuna.
