Gates (worth $46.6 billion) is still the richest man in the world (whew, you're thinking, right?), but his buddy Warren Buffet, the investment guru from Omaha, Nebraska, is right on his heels with $42.9 billion and might soon surpass Gates. Eight of the top 10 billionaires are from the United States and five are from the Walton family, which owns Wal-Mart. Another Microsoft billionaire, cofounder Paul Allen, is in fifth place.
