Young billionaires

  People often say that “young people are always wasting their youth.” This is probably not talking about the youngest billionaires on the list.
  Of course, some of them are lucky to get their wealth through inheritance. For example, Yang Huiyan, the wealthiest woman in China, got a whole set of real estate worth US$7.4 billion from her generous father, Yang Guoqiang.
  The same goes for Hind Hriri, 24, the daughter of the late Lebanese former prime minister Rafik Al-Hariri. After graduating from Lebanese American University in Beirut, she follows fashion and frequently appears in fashion shows in Paris. It is also rumored that she is in love with Chanel’s designers.
  However, in fact, most young billionaires have created their own wealth. Ukraine’s youngest billionaire, Kostyantin Zhevago, started working as a bank’s financial director when he was only 19 years old. In the following time, he gained most of his wealth in the company he controlled. Today, with 3.4 billion fortunes, the 34-year-old has become a representative of Ukraine’s Congress.
  Then there is a Chinese billionaire who was nicknamed Light. The 33-year-old Xiaofeng Peng (彭小峰) entered the field of solar energy in 2005 and opened his company LDK Solar, which produces solar energy. The silicon wafer for the panel will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange two years later.
  American John Arnold dropped out after three years at Vanderbilt University. He became an Enron oil merchant. According to speculation, his company earned 750 million fortunes in 2001. After the business failed, he set up his own hedge fund, Centaurus Energy. He has done well enough in the past days, so he made his debut on Forbes’ list of world billionaires with a net wealth of 1.5 billion.
  The wealthiest and most famous of these outstanding people are mostly Google co-founders Brin and Larry Page. The two of them, both professor sons, met in a computer class at Stanford University for a Ph.D., and then both dropped out and founded Google when they were just 25 years old. They became billionaires for the first time at the age of 30 and 31. Today, they each have 18.7 billion and 18.6 billion wealth.
  Nevertheless, these hard-working billionaires still want to make time to enjoy their wealth when they are still young. After all, how many people in this world can be so incredible to be the owners of billions of wealth before wrinkles appear in the corners of the eyes and fat starts to accumulate? Larry Page seems to feel this. Last year he borrowed the 57-year-old British billionaire Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island, to hold his wedding. The guest list for this wedding includes Bono and Clinton. 600 people. Earlier, Brin got married on a sandbank in the Bahamas; it is rumored that he once hosted a bachelor party that included paragliding on the shore of Greenland.
  This group of young billionaire boys should learn something from the 24-year-old German prince Albert von Thurn and Taxis. At the age of 18, he inherited a huge amount of fortune and became a billionaire. He lives in the castle, owns 75,000 acres of land, and spends his free time with racing cars. This is a good life in any era, but it is especially enviable that this is just a young man who has not yet reached the age of 25.
