Carlos Slim is once again the richest man in the world. With a net worth of more than $73 billion, the Telemex chairman leads the list of the richest of the rich. By the way, that list has nearly 1,500 people on it.

I have to admit to a sense of wonder and bewilderment at the fact that a Mexican achieves this every year. True, he’s the son of a Lebanese immigrant, but almost everyone’s family was an immigrant at some point.
