The most stunning feature of this year’s list of the world’s super-rich is the transfer of economic heft away from the traditional ‘West’. For the first time, there are more billionaires from BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) than from Europe. The US is still on top, but economic power is hemorrhaging towards the emerging economies around the globe. Many 20th century certainties are being undone.

Perhaps more shocking is the growing disparity between the wealth of the few and the position of the rest of humanity. The American tycoons Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are presently busying themselves with giving away most of their vast fortunes to social and charitable causes. Do many of the Indian billionaires intend to do the same?
