    Carlos Slim might top the richest list. But he is not in the same category.
    Gates & Buffet built something, something tangible.

    While Slim falls into the category of Blankfein, Dimon, etc. This category is to bribe your way and make your money the old fashioned way – stealing it from a public treasury.
    Slim made his money by getting the Mexican Telephone monopoly cheaply when it was privatize. (Mexico has one of the highest phone rate with the lowest penetration of technology)

    This is just like Dimon & Blankfein ripping off Uncle Sam of $1.6 Trillion.
