    It can only be their " connections " as interpreting figures is just guess work.

    This is just me, but when I looked at Carlos Slim's mug shot, I thought about what he DIDN'T do for his own country. Yeah, he's a billionaire while his country's in poverty; and sneaking over to the US to improve their lives.
    And please don't get me started on Bill Gates, that pre-meditated murderer/depopulation freak....
    No billionaire is worth commending.
