According to Forbes 2013, Moscow has the largest community of billionaires in the world. In 2008, Moscow had 74 billionaires
with an average wealth of $5.9 billion, which placed it above New York's 71 billionaires. However, as of 2009, there are
only 27 billionaires in Moscow compared with New York's 55 billionaires. Based on Forbes' 2011-list of the world's billionaires,
Moscow is the city with the most billionaires in the world, with 79 from 115 in all of Russia. The nouveau riche, also called
the New Russians, often in a derogatory sense, have a reputation for flaunting their wealth; the avenues for doing so have
increased in recent times - a sense of fashion and self-consciousness has instilled itself through the many haute couture
and haute cuisine spots in Moscow.
