CEOWorld Magazine released its list of the wealthiest people in the world. Believe it or not, six out of the top ten are Jews, including Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Ellison.

French billionaire Bernard Arnault who was, for a short while anyway, the world’s wealthiest man has dropped down to second place with a total estimated net worth of $211.5 billion. He now follows Elon Musk, who once again sits on top of the world with a net worth of $229 billion.

The Beatles said that money can’t buy you love. Well, apparently it also can’t buy you that vanity hotel project that you wanted to build in one of the swankiest neighborhoods in America. Or at least it can’t do that for Bernard Arnault.
