      Who is Nicky? I tried through search engine and only Nicky Hilton seems plausible or maybe I am not aware of it. I heard about a Mexican tycoon Carlos Slim being richer than Bill Gates.

      I never knew that Rockefeller if he would have all those oil companies would have been many times richer than Bill Gates. Thumbs up for a nice article.
