Carlos Slim is the richest man in the world who owns $59 billion us dollars surpassing bill gates who has a wealth of $59 billion us dollars. He hails from Mexico. He has gone a long way in order to climb the ladder of financial prosperity. Slim has attained his current monetary position because of his hardwork in investing rather than just sheer luck as others would have it. In the beginning he was an academician, he worked as a mathematics instructor but latter he ventured in business. Still when he was an instructor he participated in buying, he also invested $55 million on an insurance company, and took a stake in retailer Sansborns. He also invested in a hotel chain. This proves that his beginning was from working perspective.
He has faced accusations regarding to the Mexican economic crises. Grayson accused him of the becoming inefficient of the Mexico economy saying that it became inefficient following the monopolies and oligopolies of people like slim. Slim clearly pointed out that such accusations of negative opinion were part of day to day for people who seem to prosper in business.
