The Master of the Universe - business tycoon, Indonesia's richest man in 2007, cabinet minister to boot - has been bumped from his position atop the country's wealthiest, according to Forbes magazine. Heck, he's not even a billionaire anymore.
So who's the fellow with the deepest pockets now? Meet Sukanto Tanoto, pulp-and-paper king with a $2-billion net worth (although even that's been carved in half in a single year). Next up are the Hartono Brothers (sounds like a WWE tag team), Budi and Michael, who get a royalty every time you suck on one on those irresistible Djarum clove cigarettes.
As for Welfare Minister Bakrie, well, he might be applying for welfare soon himself. He dropped to a shameful ninth. We'll be taking donations to help him out.
