Kim Jong Un, Richest Person Alive!

Who is the richest person alive right now?


My vote goes to Kim Jong Un
This guy has full control of his country which has vasts amounts of natural resources iron, gold, magnesite, zinc, copper, limestone, molybdenum, graphite and rare earth minerals. It is estimate that the value of this is about $6 trillion dollars (source:North Korea is sitting on trillions of dollars of untapped wealth, and its neighbors want in)
Not to mention he now has a few of these:
And a bunch of these:
So I don’t think Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Carlos Slim and Jeff Bezos can hold a candle to Kim Jong Un even though he is not on the Forbes list.
***UPDATE***
For the commentary on him not owning a yacht, who needs one when you have one of these green monsters
Picture him roll’n
Travel… who needs it when people come to you
And you can build your own amusement parks.

Forget about the henchmen and lackeys, this article is only about the main antagonists, the truly interesting, those who have the Money and the Power and a lot of both. 

As any James Bond fan know all Bond nemesis are wealthy, powerful and influent. In fact, just like in real-life, Bond villains need tons of Money to be efficient evil-doers.


"All James Bond's best enemies were Billionaires." - Ice-T


With a combined worth of $26.2 Billion, here are the top 10 richest Bond villains as determined by the highly reputable Forbes magazine. Only movies were take into consideration, not the Ian Fleming books.

  1. Hugo Drax, $7.6 Billion  - Moonraker (1979)
  2. Auric Goldfinger, $6.5 Billion  - Goldfinger (1964)

Bond villain MBA

Here are some very interesting studies analysing James Bond villains business strategy with a real-life perspective. As the author Kevin Patrick Leech observed, many of the Bond villains business approaches are far from brillant. 

One thing for sure is that every Bond villain make the same stupid mistake of letting James Bond alive instead of killing him when they had the occasion.







If you are like me, you can't get enough of watching and re-watching each and everyone of James Bond classic movies. 

Below are the most recent James Bond collections for the most avid and dedicated James Bond fans among us.

Jacob Fugger the Rich worlds richest man





Was the first documented millionaire weighting $75 Million in sixteenth century dollar and by the time of his death in 1525 had a fortune equaling "just under 2 percent of European economic output". Todays GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the European Union is USD $18.5 Trillion. Which mean that his net worth would be the equivalent of nearly $370 Billion in 2014.

He was richer than Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Rockefeller, and Croesus.



Jakob Fugger of the Lily (6 March 1459 – 30 December 1525), also known as Jakob Fugger the Rich or sometimes Jakob II, was a major merchant, mining entrepreneur and banker of Europe. He was a descendant of the Fugger merchant family located in the Free Imperial City of Augsburg, where he was also born and later also elevated through marriage to Grand Burgher of Augsburg. Within a few decades he expanded the family firm to a business operating in all of Europe. 


Divide your fortune into four equal parts: stocks, real estate, bonds and gold coins. Be prepared to lose on one of them most of the time. During inflation, you will lose on bonds and win on gold and real estate; during deflation, you lose on real estate and win on bonds, while your stocks will see you through both periods, though in a mixed fashion. Whenever performance differences cause a major imbalance, rebalance your fortunes back to the four equal parts. – Jacob Fugger the Rich, 1459-1525

Financial assets (stocks and bonds)
Real assets (gold and real estate)

Batman & Iron Man richest superheroes NET WORTH






Yes indeed! Without Money you're nobody. MONEY is in fact the best superpower ever.

Since superpower is synonymous with superhero. I'm particularly interested in knowing more about Billionaire playboy genius philanthropist superheroes Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Iron Man (Tony Stark) net worth and entreprise revenues.





These Are the 5 Richest Superheroes








 2. Tony Stark

Iron Man

Net Worth: $12.4 billion
Tony Stark, otherwise known as Iron Man, narrowly edges out Wayne in the battle of billionaire playboys. Interestingly, while Forbes ranks Stark’s wealth ahead of Batman, the publication lists Stark Industries’ revenue ($20.3 billion) as less than that of Wayne Enterprises. Chalk it up to Wayne’s legendary philanthropy.

3. Bruce Wayne

Net Worth: $9.2 billion
Considering Bruce Wayne’s superpower is essentially “being rich enough to afford gadgets and karate training,” it makes sense that the Batman would be pretty loaded. Forbes estimates Wayne’s worth at $9.2 billion, and lists his company, Wayne Enterprises, as having an annual revenue of $31.3 billion.

Industry: Aerospace & Defense
CEO: Tony Stark

Stark Industries dominates headlines following alleged misdeeds of security personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Regardless, family controlled company saw sales surge thanks to contacts forged after Stark was appointed head of global law-enforcement unit S.H.I.E.L.D. New line of “Hulkbuster” armored suits won $6.2 billion Department of Defense contract.
