We didn’t know Gadhafi was making that kind of bread!
Senior Libyan officials are telling the Los Angeles Times that Gadhafi may have had a net worth of $200 billion before he died. Read that again.
Most of this money was tied in assets with $67 billion in Europe and America and tens of billions spread out across the world. This would make him the richest man in the world, ahead of the previous richest man, Carlos Slim who is worth a reported $125 billion. It’s unclear how much of this money Libya will be able to recover to run its government moving forward. But even half of that is more than enough to get things started. That’s a whole lot of cheddar.
