4. Azim Premji ($13.8 billion)
Wipro chairman Azim Premji, whose fortune is up $1.6 billion in past year, got boost after spinning off its consumer products business in March. India’s richest tech tycoon, he foresees double-digit growth for the outsourcer as the U.S. economy recovers. He blames the government for India’s economic slide but supported a proposal to increase taxes on the rich. Asia’s most generous person, who’s given away shares worth $4.4 billion, Premji recently said the new rule that companies should donate 2% of profits to charity wasn’t a good idea: “philanthropy should be spontaneous not forced.”
