Forbes forecast

With a net worth of $62 billion, Indian business tycoon Mukesh Ambani would be the richest man on earth in 2014, according to a forecast issued by the prestigious Forbes magazine. “One of the predictions is that Reliance Industries’ chief Ambani, who currently has a net worth of $29 billion, pips the world’s richest man Mexican businessman Carlos Slim to top Forbes’ rich list in 2014,” it said. Ambani’s net worth swells to $62 billion while Slim is “hit hard by Mexican political, financial chaos,” according to the prediction by Forbes. 53-year-old Ambani currently ranks fourth on Forbes’ list of the world’s billionaires. Forbes has listed a number of events that could happen over the next 10 years in the field of politics, energy, medicine, finance, society and technology. The publication asked its staff and contributors to forecast some of the “noteworthy events” till 2020. “A vision of the coming decade sketched from real data, projections and facts whenever possible — though we’ve injected a dose of rigorous science fiction to fill the gaps,” Forbes said about its special 2020 report called ‘What Happens Next — Our Look Ahead’.
