SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Sioux Falls philanthropist T. Denny Sanford has dropped off Forbes magazine's billionaire list.
Sanford has seen his net worth decrease from $2.8 billion in 2008, but he remained on the 2009 list with a net worth estimated at $1 billion. Forbes says it has now fallen below that threshold.
Forbes lists Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim Helu as the world's richest man, with a fortune estimated at $53.5 billion, ahead of American tycoons Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
Forbes says the world has 1,011 billionaires, up from 793 a year ago but still shy of the record 1,125 in 2008.
