From my new column in Taki`s Magazine:Sailer: Forbes Israels list of 165 Jewish billionaires
Forbes Israel, the Tel Aviv offshoot of the American business magazine, has a cover story on Jewish billionaires. The Israeli edition has made up a list, drawn from Forbes‘s overall ranking of the world’s 1,426 billionaires, of the 165 richest Jews in the world.
In America, this just isn’t done in the mainstream media, even though it’s obviously interesting and important, and fairly easy to do.
Here’s my count of Forbes Israel‘s list, with Jewish billionaires as a fraction of the country’s total number of billionaires:
US 105 / 442 = 24% Israel 16 / 16 = 100% Russia 12 / 99 = 12% Canada 6 / 29 = 21% Brazil 6 / 45 = 13% UK 5 / 37 = 14% Ukraine 3 / 10 = 30% Monaco 3 / 3 = 100% Australia 3 / 22 = 14% Spain 2 / 20 = 10% France 2 / 24 = 8% Germany 1 / 58 = 2% Hong Kong 1 / 39 = 3%
