    That would be extremely difficult to answer because the richest would be the ones that are happiest and have others that love them. I'd bet that you really want to know which 20 men in the world have the most money. Even that may be hard to answer because some folks are quite guarded as to the private financial matters. Heck even Bill Gates may be farther down the list of people that have the most money than you think because he has given away many millions of dollars for charitable causes in his lifetime.
