Bill Gates - Redefining Action Hero

With hours’ today strike at 4 PM in New York, Bill Gates became the world’s richest person today for the first time since 2007, according to the Bloomberg. Gates fortune was valued at $72.7 billion, which was more than $550 million ahead of Carlos Slim, who has a wealth of $72.1 billion.

The whole thing comes to picture over because of Microsoft’s shares hit a five-year-high today and advanced 28 percent year-to-date. On the other end, if we also notice a thing that Slim’s fortune lowered by more than $2 billion this year as Mexico’s Congress passed a bill for the market dominance of the Slim’s America Movil SAB.

Sounds like crazy right?
