Bill Gates Retakes World’s Richest Title

Bill Gates, with a $72.7 billion fortune, has once again retaken the crown of "the person everyone is most jealous of." wink

Gates, 57, was more than $550 million ahead of Carlos Slim, who has a $72.1 billion net worth. The co-founder of Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) has seen his fortune climb about $10 billion this year. The software maker’s shares hit a five-year high today, and have advanced 28 percent year-to-date.
