    STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Ingvar Kamprad, the Swede who founded furniture retail chain IKEA, has overtaken Microsoft's Bill Gates as the world's richest man, Swedish TV news reported on Sunday.

    Citing next week's edition of the Swedish business weekly Veckans Affarer, public service SVT2 television said Kamprad, 77, has a personal fortune of 400 billion crowns ($53 billion).

    Gates's fortune is put at $47 billion, according to the latest list of the world's rich in U.S. Forbes magazine, SVT2 said.

    Kamprad, known for frugal habits such as flying economy class, lives in Switzerland and no longer takes part in the daily running of IKEA, but has kept ownership of the company with more than 180 stores in over 30 countries in the family.

    SVT2 said the dollar's slide against other currencies is the main reason why Kamprad has now overtaken Gates.

    If I become rich, the first thing I'll change is no longer flying economy. First class fuckers have it made.

    BULLSHIT GETS CALLED

    sorry guys....


    • Ikea said that wasn't the case.

      "This is completely wrong. It's a mistake that is made all the time," said Ikea spokeswoman Marianne Barner. "Estimating the value of the company, including all the stores, and saying it's all Ingvar's, that is totally wrong."

      "Ingvar Kamprad does not own Ikea. Ingvar donated the concern to the Dutch Stichting INGKA Foundation in 1982."

      In February, Forbes magazine's annual ranking of the world's billionaires put Gates at No. 1 with an estimated $46.6 billion. It was the 10th consecutive year the Microsoft co-founder was atop the list.

      Buffett, the Omaha investment guru, was No. 2 with $42.9 billion.

      On that same list, Kamprad was No. 13, with an estimated fortune of $18.5 billion.

    ^ did you read my post above?

    they got their facts wrong.
    he's like 4Billion richer than the #2 guy.

    *oh... even the Europe V. Microsoft case that just finished only fined them 600Million, and none of that is Gates' pocket money.
