The 1 chart on billionaires you need to see

Did you know that of the 1,645 billionaires in the world 492 of them (roughly 30 percent) call the United States home? (China is second with 152 billionaires.) Or that World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon is a new member of the billionaires club? (His wife, Linda, dropped $100 million on two unsuccessful Senate bids in Connecticut. Chump change!) Or, for the more politically inclined of us, that three of the 10 richest billionaires -- David Koch ($40 billion), Charles Koch ($40 billion) and Sheldon Adelson ($38 billion) --  are major Republican donors?

This awesome -- and awesomely long -- infographic from investingtips360.com based off of information from Forbes has all of those fun facts and many more. Enjoy.
