The New Billionaire Capital Of The World Is…

Sorry Yonkers, you’re not the richest city in the world any longer. Nope. The title of the “Billionaire Capital of the World” now officially belongs to Beijing.

Newer reports, like the one that was published by Shanghai firm Hurun this month, have confirmed that Beijing now outnumbers New York for billionaires, but only by a very thin margin. The tally, as the report claims, is now 100 to 95.

The study follows on the heels of reports that surfaced claiming China had more billionaires than the U.S. did. In spite of an inflated currency and tumultuous stock market, it would appear that the Chinese finally have more billionaires in their capital city.

It should be noted that Hurun and Forbes usually have differing lists when categorizing the world’s wealthiest elite. The wealth calculations being used by Hurun rely upon stock prices as of the middle of January, after the Chinese stock market dived over 40%. Were they made previous to the landslide, the firm claims they would have shown 150 billionaires.

Just last year, Hurun says, Beijing gained 32 new billionaires. New York, by comparison, got just four. As it currently stands, Moscow sits in third with 66 billionaires, but Hong Kong has 64 and Shanghai has 50.

The wealthiest man in China is a real estate mogul named Wang Jianlin, who’s ranked 21st in the world for his wealth. Meanwhile, in a close proximity to him are magnates such as Alibaba founder Jack Ma and beverage maker Zong Qinghou.

However, per capita, the billionaires aside, Forbes has an interesting list of the world’s richest nations.

Qatar ranks in first place with a GDP per capita of $88,222, Luxemburg is second at $81,466, and Singapore is third at $56,694. The U.S. comes in seventh at $46,860. Meanwhile, Hong Kong is ranked eighth at $45,944. (Bear in mind these Forbes numbers are dated to 2009.)

So what does it take to be ranked in the top 1% of wealth in the U.S. currently?

According to the Federal Reserve, you’d have to have net assets worth $7 million or greater. A rather absurd notion given that CNN Money reported that the average American family earned just $53,675 last year.

Here’s to thinking big.

  12. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
