Forbes China rich list

A month after Euromoney China published its list of China's richest people with Huang Guangyu of Gome Appliances at the top, Forbes publishes its list.

Many of the usual suspects are there, but Forbes counts the dollars differently: Larry Rong (Rong Zhijian) of CITIC Pacific is at the top, with Huang Guangyu in second place. For some reason, Forbes uses Cantonese-style romanization for Huang's name, calling him Wong Kwong Yu.

The Forbes China list is here.
