The Forbes Fictional 15

Forbes has announced its annual ranking of the world's richest fictional characters.  They say the collective fortunes of those ranked at the top have surged tremendously over the past year.
On top of the list is the ancient red-golden dragon Smaug, known by hobbits and dwarves across Middle Earth as “Smaug the Tremendous” and “Smaug the Unassessably Wealthy.” Smaug’s personal fortune jumped 16% from last year to $62 billion after wyrm watchers crafted a more detailed analysis of his massive hoard of coins, jewels and antiques.

In case you'd like to skip the slideshow, here is the list:
1. Smaug
2. Flintheart Glomgold
3. Carlisle Cullen
4. Jed Clampett
5. Tony Stark
6. Richie Rich
7. Charles Foster Kane
8. Bruce Wayne
9. Forrest Gump
10. Mr. Monopoly
11. Lisbeth Salander
12. Tywin Lannister
13. C. Montgomery Burns
14. Robert Crawley
15. Jo Bennett

Scrooge McDuck and Santa Claus, who topped the list in previous years, are nowhere to be seen. Link -via Blame It On The Voices

Without Scrooge McDuck, the list makes no sense. You could move smaug, his hoard, and his entire cave to the bottom of the money vault and the money would still cover them up completely.

I think Flintheart Glumgold's presence on the list explains what happened to Scrooge McDuck. Perhaps it's the writer's commntary on unscrupulous business practices due to de-regulation.
