This article really captures the spirit of Lebanonese standards: "It is not uncommon for a Lebanese to join the club of the rich and famous. One of the first names that come to mind is late former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who made his huge fortune in Saudi Arabia in construction and contracting. But many Lebanese probably felt very proud when the prestigious Forbes magazine named Carlos Slim Helu as the third richest man in the world right after Bill Gates and Warren Buffet." (thanks Manar)
