Top 50 Youngest Billionaires In The World (2023)

Looking at the list of the top youngest billionaires in the world it is hard to understand why some analysts choose to ascribe their wealth to luck. That has a tone of masked contempt because it is seldom used for older person with wealth- as if to say they deserve their money while the young do not.

Granted; there is always a bit of good fortune involved in making money; but that has to be in combination with other factors such as hard work; being adaptive, and having the fortitude to overcome reverses.

Tech and crypto currencies have made many people rich; just as real estate and manufacturing made the previous generation wealthy.
