The world's second-richest man made his $60 billion by acquiring Mexico's state-owned telephone monopoly in 1990, parlaying that into an empire of telecommunications, real estate, retail, media and consumer goods. He credits his Lebanese immigrant father, who dealt in dry goods and real estate in Mexico City, with nurturing his financial acumen—as a child, he was given a savings book along with his allowance and told to manage his income.
Juan Camilo Mouriño Terrazo (August 1, 1971 – November 4, 2008) was a Mexican politician affiliated to the National Action Party (PAN) and the Secretary of the Interior in the cabinet of President Felipe Calderón.
Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mouriño was in a SEGOB-owned Learjet 45 that crashed into rush hour Mexico City traffic on November 4, 2008, killing all eight people on board. The crash occurred in one of the most up-scale districts of Mexico City, and only 1 kilometer from the Presidential Residence, Los Pinos.
Secretary Mouriño had spent the day at an official function in the state of San Luis Potosí and left the state capital's international airport at 17:00 local time. There is a confirmed number of 14 fatalities: five passengers (included him) three crew (pilot, co-pilot and one stewardess) and six people that were in ground zero, plus about 40 injured, as a result of the incident. Also among those who died was Mexican politician and lawyer José Luis Santiago Vasconcelos, who was travelling with Mouriño.
Recently, the Mexican government announced that the two black boxes that the Police found in the accident are going to be analyzed. They were found in excellent condition and will be sent to the United States to determine the reason(s) why the plane crashed in Paseo de la Reforma Avenue.
Among the dead was Secretary of the Interior Juan Camilo Mouriño, top aide to President Felipe Calderón. Mouriño was in charge of the fight against the drug trade in Mexico.
Top officials have questioned the government's handling of the security of its top officials, and seriously criticized President Felipe Calderón's administration in stating that, "No country in the civilized world sends 2 top officials traveling in the same plane."
The Mexican magnate's rising fortune has caused a controversy because it has been amassed in a developing country where per capita income does not surpass $14,500 a year, and nearly 17% of the population lives in poverty. Critics claim that Slim is a monopolist, pointing to Telmex's control of 90% of the Mexican landline telephone market. Slim's wealth is the equivalent of roughly 5% of Mexico's annual economic output. Telmex, which is 49.1% owned by Slim and his family, charges among the highest usage fees in the world, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
According to Professor Celso Garrido, an economist at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Slim's domination of his country's conglomerates chokes off growth of smaller companies, resulting in a shortage of good jobs and driving many Mexicans to seek better lives north of the Rio Grande.
Slim says he is unfazed by the criticism: "When you live for others' opinions, you are dead. I don't want to live thinking about how I'll be remembered". He also claims indifference about his ranking and says he has no interest in becoming the world's richest person. When asked to explain his sudden increase in wealth at a press conference soon after Forbes annual rankings were published, he reportedly said, "The stock market goes up ... and down", and noted that his fortune could quickly drop
