Ok, so we all know Mr. Gates is el hombre con mucho dinero, but much of that is in MS stock and such, so what individual has the most cold, hard cash at their disposal?

Just wondering.

huh? What, do you think billionaires just have wads of cash sitting around, so much that they stoke the living room fire with it? You probably have more "cash" at hand then most millionaires. Much of wealth is just on paper.

They are rich because their money isn't liquid, its mostly invested...

as CPA says, you don't get to be a billionaire by having cash laying about

it really doesn't work that way

Bill Gates cashed out 6 Billion worth of stock back in 1994 or something. That is some cold hard cash!

I am guessing only drug dealers would have cash sitting around.

Not necessarily, it could have easily been funded into his brokerage account, used to buy something else.
