Just entering 2021, there will be more people than Ma Yun, Ma Huateng, Huang Zheng, Liu Qiangdong, Wang Xing and other tycoons, “Niu” has become the new richest man!
On January 4, shares of Nongfu Spring’s listed company, controlled by founder Zhong Shanshan, soared, making it Asia’s richest man with a fortune worth more than $100 billion.
A hundred billion worth of what concept?Here’s how it works:
A Zhong Zhong = Ma Huateng (US $56.1 billion), Liu Qiangdong (US $21.9 billion) and Wang Jianlin (US $14.5 billion)
Are you surprised?E-commerce sellers are no match for a water seller. Is this water made of gold?
And that’s not all!The next day, the man went straight to the sixth richest person in the world, becoming the first Chinese to break into the top 10.
His wealth, has surpassed the “god of stocks” Buffett, close behind the fifth Mark Zuckerberg.
This makes people have to reasonable doubt: Nongfu Spring’s “mineral” spring water, inside the diamond is not true?
But whether or not there were diamonds in the water, it is a fact that Zhong has managed to overtake a group of tycoons to become the richest man in Asia and one of the top 10 richest men in the world by selling water.
Only in ancient times, “to wear the crown, must bear its weight” said, now there is “the richest man curse”.
Zhong is joined by Wang Jianlin, Li Hejun and Jack Ma as Asia’s richest Chinese.
But whether you are selling houses, building hydropower stations or working on the Internet, China’s richest people in all walks of life and with different personalities are now in a slump. Some are selling assets, some are going bankrupt, and some are being accused by thousands of people…
But silence in these standards is like Zhong’s, can a low-key requirement break the “richest man’s curse”?
To know the answer, you have to start at the beginning.
Zhong was born in 1954 in a family of a scholar in Hangzhou, east China’s Zhejiang province, and has been a townboy with Jack Ma since he was born.
Unfortunately, Zhong’s birth in these standards is not always a requirement.In 1966, after a few good years, the Cultural Revolution broke out.
Zhong’s grandfather, Zhong Ziyi, was a secretary of the first branch of the Communist Party of China in Zhuji during the Northern Expedition.However, because of his experience of “defecting from the party”, Zhong Ziyi was eventually labeled as a “Rightist” and sent to the countryside with his family.
