Rise of Indonesian ‘super-rich’

Indonesia is expected to have 100,000 millionaires by 2015 as boom times bring increasing prosperity.

The World Bank predicts that despite a worldwide economic downturn, Indonesia’s growth will continue. 

The rising price of Indonesia’s natural resources is helping to create a fast-growing middle class, and a group of super-rich citizens.

By 2015, it is estimated that Indonesia will have over 100,000 millionaires, despite half of the population still living on $2 a day.
