    The 25 Countries With the Most Billionaires

    The 25 Countries With the Most Billionaires

    There are roughly 36 million millionaires in the world.

    That means if you meet someone from the global population at random, there’s a 1 in 200 chance that they could be a millionaire – this makes for surprisingly good odds.

    However, the billionaire on the other hand is a much rarer breed. According to Forbes, there are just over 2,000 billionaires in existence, making up just 0.00003% of the global population.

    On Mar. 7, elections in Sierra Leone marked a global landmark: the world’s first ever blockchain-powered presidential elections.

    As president Ernest Bai Koroma leaves office after serving two five-year terms, the maximum allowed constitutionally, Sierra Leoneans have had to pick from a pool of 16 candidates including the ruling party’s Samura Kamara, the erstwhile foreign minister, and Julius Maada Bio, former military head of state and candidate of the main opposition party.

    Results released by Sierra Leone’s election commission (NEC) suggest a run-off between Bio and Kamara is likely with neither candidate securing the required 55% of votes so far. Sierra Leone’s new president will be tasked with a continued rebuilding given the country’s recent major disasters. In 2014, an Ebola outbreak led to nearly 4,000 deaths and GDP losses estimated at $1.4 billiona major loss for one of the world’s poorest countries. Last year Sierra Leone’s capital also

    A spokesman for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says he quit over what he called “misleading facts”spread by Trump administration officials.

    The false information, according to the spokesman, James Schwab, is related to an ICE operation last month that targeted 1,000 undocumented immigrants in Northern California.

    Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf warned her community that the raid was coming, drawing the ire of ICE acting director Thomas Homan and US attorney general Jeff Sessions. They blamed Schaaf’s warning for ICE’s failure to apprehend all of its targets—the raid resulted in around 200 arrests. “Those are 800 wanted criminals that are now at large, 800 wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue by other means, with more difficulty, in dangerous situations, all because of one irresponsible action,” ...
