Michael Bloomberg is Worth $27 Billion

According to Forbes’ latest billionaire list, Michael Bloomberg — mayor, media maven, soda hater — is worth $27 billion. That’s an increase from 2012, when he was worth a pathetic $22 billion.

Despite all that money, Bloomberg only ranks as the 13th wealthiest person in the world. The number one spot is held down by Carlos Slim and family, with $73 billion. He is followed by Bill Gates ($67 billion), Amancio Ortega ($57), and Warren Buffett ($53.5).

For the full list of people with way more money than all of us combined, click through. Ladies, we suggest you don’t even bother. Out of the 1,426 total people on the list, only 138 of them are women.
