There are 2,325 billionaires on the earth.
And they control 4% of the world’s wealth.
According to a new report from research firm Wealth-X, about 13% of billionaires inherited their fortune, 27% became billionaires from re-investing inherited wealth, and a full 60% of billionaires made their money themselves.
Let’s drill into how they made all that cash.

Ab-Soul often finds himself collaborating with soulful singers. Nikki Jean, who’s collaborated with him in the past, is one of the few. The two open up hump day with “Champagne Water.”
Like the drink that inspired it, Nikki Jean’s extended jam features bubbly production that Ab-Soul’s lyrically dense style happens to fit into: “God damn, why these humans so devilish/ Fuck Led Zeppelin, the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ in.”
Ab-Soul is working on Longterm Mentality 3 — what he calls his debut album.
The first teaser trailer for the anticipated sequel will air Tuesday, Oct. 28 during Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” television series on ABC during the 9 p.m. hour ET.
The network made the announcement Tuesday evening during the hour-long show.
We expect it to hit the web soon afterward.
The “Avengers” sequel is in theaters May 1, 2015.
Los Angeles based vocalist Nikki Jean recently hit the studio with TDE’s Ab-Soul and cooked up a funky number titled “Champagne Water.” Detailing her journey through life, it’s apparent that Nikki is enjoying every step of the way.
