Last year, Rolls Royce sold more cars
than ever before in their 100-year history,
but then the luxury industry knows no crisis.

Since 2009 the rich have become on average
6 percent richer. So while one in six Americans
now has no health insurance, Manhattan's 58
billionaires have gotten richer.

As Manuel Koch points out the ratio of return
expected by the rich has totally shifted, "People
used to be happy making three million in profit.
Today, companies like Apple account for 6 billion
profit. That's profit! Not turnover."

I agree. it is sickening what people will do for the top rank of "richest in the whatever."

i believe the guys name is Carlos Slim. ( I learned about him when i recently traveled to Mexico for a family emergency.)

odd his background.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Slim

I guess he was born in Mexico, but came from Lebonese decent but doesnt state where his father hailed from.

He owns Telcel there and an oil company of some sorts. and in Mexico City they are basically on every corner.
