Gates Loses to Best Pal

Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have a mini-mutual-admiration society. They support the same causes (The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) and neither are as flashy as their wealth would indicate (compare either to Donald Trump and you'll see what I mean).

But for at least a decade, Bill has outpaced Warren for good, old-fashioned greenbacks. This year, Buffet finally turned the tables, and is now the richest man in the world.

We'll check back after Wall Street recovers and see who's on top then. It'll probably be some short seller we've never heard of.
