    While we are taking on the topic of Net Worth of Malaysia’s 40 Richest Drops by 22% to US$36 Billions | TradeOrInvest.com, The four richest people in the world are worth billions. Yes, that’s billions, with a “b.” How about millionaires? What do they do? I know a few of them myself, so I can tell you that most of them are business owners. They own nursing homes, logging companies, tile companies, movie rental shops, and other types of businesses. A few of them even own home based businesses.
