Is bill gates the richest man in the world?
Bill Gates is the third wealthiest man. Ahead of him are Warren Buffett and Carlos Slim. Remember, these are all individuals. There are many families with immense wealth, ie: The Sultan of Brunei's family and the many Saudi Princes and their families.
Tell you what though I doubt anyone has a house as nice as Bill Gates, his house is freaking awesome.
No, he is rich but there are people far more richer than Bill Gates.
