It is a fact that out of a world population of 7.1 billion people on the planet and just over 300 Million in the #U.S, there are 1,645 billionaires in the world today; 442 of which from the US (2014, Wikipedia) and about 2/3 or just under 1,100 of them self-made.
Now this means that unless you happen to fall into a rather sizable inheritance, all other things being equal you have a 0.00001549295% chance of becoming a #billionaire. If you live in the U.S. your odds are 0.00014733333%, which is actually an order of magnitude better (now we’re getting somewhere).
Can never say never though …
