On Feb. 11, when Forbes ranked assets of the richest people around the world, Microsoft stock had dipped because of its efforts to acquire Yahoo. Gates’s rank on the Forbes billionaire list dipped from 1 to 3. His good buddy, Warren Buffett, who now holds the top spot.

The above map shows Americans ranking in the top 50 of the 2008 list, released yesterday. Technology, investments, and casinos lifted self-made billionaires to the top. The Mars and Walton families inherited their rankings.
