The Richest Person On Each Continent

Tyler Durden's picture

With a stock price surge of 13% after Amazon’s most recent quarterly filing, Wall Street analysts were reportedly “shocked” by the company’s rapid growth. The e-commerce juggernaut beat both quarterly revenue and earnings forecasts, and continues to trailblaze with a 34% revenue growth rate.

This boded well for the net worth of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, which fluctuates wildly based on Amazon stock price movements. In fact, as Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins notes, the recent jump in price on October 27 helped catapult him past Bill Gates (again) to become the richest person in North America, as well as the entire world.

As of publication time, according to Forbes’ real-time wealth tracker, his wealth stands at $92.6 billion.


Today’s graphic comes to us from and it shows the richest person on each continent.

Here is the full breakdown:

Net worth figures from as of November 3, 2017

To be thorough, also “nominated” a person to represent the continent of Antarctica, even though it has no permanent residents.

Chosen for this title? It’s none other than Arnold W. Donald, the CEO of Carnival, the world’s largest cruise company, which monetizes the icy continent for its Antarctic cruises on a regular basis.

This graphic has been amended since initial publication. Just yesterday, Mukesh Ambani climbed up the list to become the richest person in Asia, and it now reflects that. Thanks to everyone who pointed this out.

Fake, whitewashing of the list. What??? Jews??? Nah, no way! Some of the poorest people on earth are Jews. Poor guys. Plus they had to endure the holocaust... at least in the mind.

And no sheiks or oil Barrons. Another bs list. Might as well be titled. . The people who we want you to think are the richest on each continent.

"Own nothing, control everything". You would have to list the largest Trust and who are the beneficiaries of those trust to find what you are looking for.

No Rothschild, no Queen of England, no Pope.

What?  No mention of the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, etc...

Wait a minute there! 

Our (((MSM))) tells us that Putin is the richest man in Eurasia, worth > $80B.

Our (((MSM))) would never get it wrong, or deceive us, would they?

worth > $80B

He had $200B when Nemtsov was still alive. So said Nemtsov himself.

How can this be?! White men are in the minority! I thought the whole world was ruled by evil White men who kept the black, brown and females down...?

T-bone steak @ $198 pesos per kilo, a bulb of garlic, a stick of butter, salt and pepper and a drizzle of vegetable oil for the cast iron skillet .... who needs billions ?

One woman ... who inherited hers.  But credit where it is due:  It is one thing to inherit it, it is another thing to keep it after you inherit it.

Behold, these thieves help form the core of your deep state, and they are to usher in the New World Order.

Fuck all of them.

DaiRR's picture

How about an article about the poorest person on each continent ?

PT's picture

Jack up interest rates a couple of percent and you'll probably have the same list.
Are those numbers gross (Assets) or net (Assets Minus Liabilities)?

EDIT:  Oh hang on a minute, the article did say NET worth.  I shall try to read more carefully next time.

Also, the ugliest person on each continent. The dumbest. The meanest .
The tallest. The fattest. The crookedest.

This could fill a lot of space!

are we there yet's picture

Hillary Clinton may be on several of your lists.

tradingdaze's picture

If you are looking for the dumbest, just check the list of posters here.

Where are all the people who actually own the world...leading Italian German UK and other black nobility families as well as the American robber barons and of course the Rothschilds?

I cannot see any of them there.. I think they count in $trillions these days!

are we there yet's picture

Where are the Rothchilds, Bill Gates, Queen Elizabeth, Vladimir Putin?

Singelguy's picture

The Rothchilds never appear on any list. Their assets are all tightly held and spread over a large number of family members, just like the Walton family. The difference is that there are far fewer Waltons than Rothchilds so even though it is divided, all the Waltons show up on the top 100 list in Amerixa.

44magnum's picture

They ((( Rothchilds ))) don't appear because they own the list.

Carlos Slim? Also Dangote is not even the richest in Nigeria, let alone Africa. That accolade goes to Gilbert Chagoury and his brother Ronald and Richest man in Africa tag, is a slight misnomer, given the profits generated by some of the mining companies, sucked out of the continent yearly. How much did Killary, and her "pay for play" donors, divide up amongst themselves after stealing Gaddaffi's offshore money and Libya's gold?   The Jew Dan Gertler net worth is grossly under reported, from his deals in the Congo. Also where is the Rothschilds net worth? This report is for fools.

techpriest's picture

Does Gilbert Chagoury live in in Africa? Or just do business there?

I am right after J. Bezos- only $10K behind,  ..... happens for some reason all the time with me. Always an inch behind the wealthiest. But it is OK, I won't cry for such a minor thing. 

Source of wealth: Zerohedge poster- supporter, poker player, plus some other activities (do not want to waste drive space on the server).

Arnold W. Donald ?

Antarctica ....... ?

Isn't he a bit brownish for an Antarctican ........?


NCIzzy's picture

it's not the the votes, it's who counts them.

it's not the dollars, it's who prints them.


zeroboris's picture

Wait! Everyone knows that Putin has over 200 billion.

0hedgehog's picture

Ever notice how the Rothschilds are always absent from these lists? Probably because they are not billionaires but TRILLIONAIRES!!!!

therover's picture

How much money do the Saudi Sheikhs have ?  I bet 90% of it is hidden.

Erwin643's picture

Wow, how hard can it be to be the richest man in Antarctica?

How conveniently they left out the owners of the west's central banks.  Wouldn't want to draw attention to the trillionaires.
