Reported by Reuters:
Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA’s founder, just surpassed Bill Gates as the richest man in the world according to business weekly Veckans Affärer. Kamprad’s wealth is $53 Billion, compared to Gates’ $47 Billion. The weakened US Dollar is the main reason Kamprad has overtaken Gates. IKEA currently operates 188 stores in 30 countries.
