One of the wealthiest man in the world is the Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, who, it is estimated, has over one hundred billion dollars. Bill started by writing versions of the programming language BASIC for home computers. If he distributed his wealth among all Americans, we’d each get over $400. If Bill saw a $100 bill on the floor, it would not be worth his time to pick it up. Better to stay focused on business because Bill makes $523 per second.
