    A Mexican online financial Web site estimates that tycoon Carlos Slim has a net worth of $67 billion, which would place his fortune above that of the Microsoft chairman, according to various media reports. Slim is known for a wide swath of holdings including banking interests, CompUSA and telecommunications firms.

    The Mexican site, Sentido Comun, noted Slim's rising wealth in April, saying that they believed he had passed both then No. 2 Warren Buffet and Gates, Britain's The Guardian said in its report. But with a recent rise in shares of mobile phone carrier America Movil, Sentido Comun founder Eduardo Garcia said, there is no doubt that Slim has surpassed Gates.

    While I wont say its totally untrue, I have a hard time believing such a story. Why? What mexican do you know who has more than 300 dollars on him? ::laugh:: And no, Im not being a stereotypist.

    it is only because of how high his companies share price is trading at. give it a couple months for it to come back to earth and good old bill will be #1 again.

    I don't think it matters who has the most cash or assets. If one has 5 billion more than the other but the other has Public respect/fear/wonder then more than likely that is the one that will win.
    As I recall the drug wars aren't only killing senselessly in Mexico and South America now but in boarder towns and states in the US. If this Slim has any part then it will be extremely hard for popularity.

    Well to be frank, we don't know the exact amount that Bill Gates or this Mexican has, its all estimation.

    Bill could spend $2,000,000 every day for the rest of his life and still die with more money than most people make in a lifetime.
