Billionaire Cheapskates!


Forbes has a terrific gallery of billionaires who live (somewhat) modestly. My favorites on the list are Ikea's Ingvar Kamprad (pictured here, and worth an astounding $33 billion) who flies coach, drives a '93 Volvo, and furnishes his home with Ikea stuff; and Wipro's Azim Premji (worth $17.1 billion) who drives a Corolla, walks to work, wears non-branded suits and stays in budget hotels when traveling.
