How Many Countries Can Bill Gates Buy? by ItuExchange(m): 6:58am On Jun 15, 2016
If Bill Gates bought up as many countries as he could afford, what would his empire look like?

According to Bloomberg, the estimated net worth of Bill Gates is around 85.6$ billion, as of June 2016.

Let’s assume a country’s worth is counted by its produced GDP, which is the monetary measure of the value of all final goods and services produced by a country in a year, as there is no real way to know how much a country is really worth since no one’s ever bought a country in recent times with hard cash.

If he would start buying up countries starting with the lowest GDP, it would look something like this:

Data from the International Monetary Fund (2015)

I'm sure Bill Gates will gladly forego all those countries you listed and buy Nigeria instead. Lol.
