Here are the 125 Wealthiest People in the World (updated as new data is released), where they are from and the industry that made them rich:

Before you allow envy to creep in, take note of a 2018 study, titled ‘Talent vs Luck: the role of randomness in success and failure
A. Pluchino, A. E. Biondo, A. Rapisarda state quite plainly that it’s all a matter of luck:

Distribution of wealth – often considered a proxy of success – follows typically a power law (Pareto law), with a large majority of poor people and a very small number of billionaires.
— A. Pluchino, A. E. Biondo, A. Rapisarda

This paper got plenty of attention from the press. Inc. created an article titled, ‘If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich??’ along with similar commentary elsewhere. Who knows? You could be lucky!
