TIME Collate The World’s Richest People Every Age





Bieber’s Billions.

TIME have collated a list of the world’s richest people, dependent on the year they were born, covering each year from 1917 to 1996. The combined estimated worth of these 80 people from 80 years is  $1.4 trillion USD. To collate the list, TIME cross-referenced the 2017 Forbes World Billionaires list with the Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index and Wealth-X.

Europeans made up 24% of the list and nearly all of them inherited their wealth. Asians made up 20% of the list, with 80% of them being self-made billionaires. It’s no surprise

It’s no surprise Justin Bieber got an honourable mention for 1994.
