Warren Buffett now second richest in the world

Warren Buffett is now the world’s second-richest person after shares of Berkshire Hathaway reached a record high. Buffett beat Mexico's Carlos Slim after seeing his net worth rise to $ 73 Billion which is around $300 million more than Carlos Slim.

Berkshire has soared 27 per cent this year as the dozens of operating businesses that the 84-year-old chairman bought over the past five decades churned out record profit. Berkshire still has around $60 Billion in cash ready to make more investments.
