Bill Gates has become the world’s richest person again, jumping ahead of Carlos Slim to claim the title.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Gates’s fortune is valued at US$72.7 billion dollars, making him 550 million dollars richer than Slim.

The Microsoft Corporation founder’s fortune has gone up by about 10 billion dollars this year, while Slim saw his fortune move the other way by more than 2 billion dollars after Mexico’s Congress passed a bill deregulating the telecom industry.
