Over half of this year’s new entrants to the billionaire list are self-made, suggesting they built their wealth by founding companies rather than inheriting it.

The United States has 67 new billionaires, led by Todd Graves, founder of Raising Cane’s fast-food chain, and has a net worth of $9.1 billion. China follows closely with 31 new billionaires, including Maggie Gu, Molly Miao, and Ren Xiaoqing, cofounders of Shein, each with an estimated net worth of $4.2 billion.
