In December, America Movil struck a deal with Yahoo to provide mobile Web services to 16 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

    Roma you’re stupid as hell. The amount shown for net worth is not how much each billionaire has, it’s only how much each billionaire is worth. They have a LOT more money in their banks. That means that even if your stupid little Russian guy sold everything he owns like his 8,000 stores, all his belongings, and even his underwear, he still wouldn’t have enough money to be at the top. Even Bill Gates has well over $200 billion in total.

    Feisa Meisa, These rich people reached where they are using their own ways, don try to imitate them, be who you are and work to achieve your dreams. Ethiopians have great history, and used to run the fourth biggest Empire in the world. Ethiopia is one of the first African country which accepted Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

    Ethiopians can change their country through hard work, I congratulate those who made it high through hard work. Ethiopians should research and get information as to how they can transform their nation. I appreciate some one who can teach me how to fish than some one who can give me the fish. Feisa I think we need to work hard and change our life, we already have proffessional beggars lets not add injury to the wound.

    I can assure you, Ethiopia will grow and we will have our own home grown billioners in the coming years. Ethiopia needs people who ca help her expad education and infrastructures. throwing money our people isnt the way to change our economy. We should help each other and develop our economy. lets stop fighting eachother and see a developed Ethiopia. Ethiopia needs peace and stability more than anything. I hope the current regime will continue to stabilise the political situation and strengthen the economy. Ethiopia will be changed by Ethiopians and Ethiopians alone. Others can stay there and help us in the developmental task.

    Individuals who rally to beg with out trying to tackle the problem seem to be a bit corrupt. No begging, congra to all of you who made it top in the fight to be the world’s rich. I know u are already helping people by creating jobs and paying your taxes. A lot of billioners do give money for charity aswell, thumbs up for your financiall sucess. good one.

    Project based assistance is the best to help the poor. Anyone who wants to help the poor should research before making the donations, spending huge amount of money to help the poor is a big investment. So one need to work hand ingloves with home grown charity organisations.

    Feisa overall good comment brother, am sure if there is a will fewbillioners can help transform peoples lives in Ethiopia, kenya, Tanzania etc. Some of these billionaires have annual expenditure the is more than our governments .
    All the best to you all

    While we are in the area of Top 10 World’s Richest People for 2008 !!.. Reading Shouts, With the number of existing scams these days, it can be rather difficult to trust an opportunity when you find one. Some will promise you thousands of dollars each month for a minimal fee but end up going incognito once you make that investment.
