We're unable to clarify it, because before we could investigate anything, were 90% of poorest person candidates died and there were born also some new potential candidates of poorest person.. :cry:

$67.8- $59= $8.8 billion

8.8*100/59= 14.9 %

So the new richest dude is richer than Bill for 14.9%.

Is imposible to know that. You see, it´s easier to quantify what you have, but how do you quantify what you don´t have? I mean, what parameters should be consider to know who the pooerst person in the world is?. This is the reason why many goverments and organizations established a parameter call "poverty line" that allows us to have a hint of people who lives in poverty....

Sadly, the amount of poor people are much more that the rich ones.....
