Tough times all around, even (especially?) for billionaires.

Biz mag's annual rankings, released this evening, show Matty just making the cut with $1B in estimated net worth.

He ranked as 321st richest globally last March at $1.5B estimated net worth.

Among last year's 1,125 billionaires listed by Forbes, 355 are out of the club, off the island, kicked to the curb with other mere megamillionaires.

I see Mikey has passed him at 1.6 billion. You know what Matty must be thinking now - Hmm, parking lots eh?:-)

How sad. He must be struggling to make ends meet with only $999,999,999 + $1.

A billion in net worth, and he still can't board up the MC Depot.
