Who Are the World’s Super-Rich? Where Do They Live? - The Atlantic
A new report from the Peterson Institute for International Economics helps us better understand this population by developing a comprehensive database of the world’s #billionaires, drawn from two decades of data from Forbes’s annual World’s Billionaires list. The report, which covers the years 1996-2015, divides the world into eight regional categories: Europe, Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, South and Central Asia, East Asia, and Anglo countries (which include the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand). It also groups industries into five broad sectors: resource-related, new, traded, non-traded, and financial. Even more interestingly, it compares the world’s self-made billionaires to those who have #inherited their wealth.
