Forbes magazine annually publishes a list of the wealthiest people in the world. In March 2022, the next rating saw the light of day – and in the new ten, there were a number of changes compared to the previous list. In this article, we will tell you which of the newcomers managed to break into the TOP-10, and who is in the lead in the ranking.
Major changes of the year
Despite the fact that the coronavirus pandemic had a negative impact on the state of the economy, many rich people not only did not lose money but also significantly increased their capital. The billions invested by governments in the economies of their countries mainly went to the big players in the stock exchanges. For many of them, the coronavirus pandemic has become a real Klondike.
Of course, the changes in the world have also caused financial losses for some billionaires. For example, Mark Zuckerberg did not make the top 10 for the first time since 2015. According to experts, due to falling stock prices, he lost about $30 billion within a few hours. His place was taken by the richest man in India, but the Americans did not give up leadership in the ranking and still occupy a large number of leading positions in it.
From the new list of the richest people in the world, you will find out who was able to save and increase capital, for whom the past period turned into major losses and how this affected the rating.
