Total Newcomers over the years

The number of self-made billionaires has risen to 1,975, which is the highest in the history. that means 72% of the list adds up to total of everything on the list equals 72% of the amount of everything (vs. about 70 percent in 2020). It’s a significant deviation from the previous Forbes list of billionaires, which found that just 49% of the total were self-made over a decade ago, when the total was 565 billionaires. The word “self-made” does not mean that anyone made a billion dollars all on their own, it is used as a comparison to “inher” and “inherited and growing.” This is only possible through cooperation.

There are precisely one hundred and six on the Forbes list under the age of forty, who have established their own businesses. At 26, the current wealthiest self-self-made young-billionaire is American Austin Russell, who quit Stanford to found Luminar Technologies with a company valued at $2.4 billion, where he is ranked No. 99.

Since March of this year, 23 billionaires have departed this existence, including Benjamin de Rothschild, the scion of a storied banking dynasty, and casino magnate Joseph Safra, both Jewish. On March 27, billionaire businessman Petr Kellner was killed in a helicopter crash in Alaska when Forbes had completed their annual rankings. He has a $17.5 billion net worth, which would almost certainly be included in the final totals.

Forbes has cross-sections of the list as well, including the world’s wealthiest sports team owners, the United States of America, plus the states with the most billionaires, the richest in the United States, and the Golden State.
