Sitting at a table, grinding his pinkie into the corner of his mouth and staring at the screen, Dr. Evil announces he is holding the world ransom for $1 million. Having been cryogenically frozen for 30 years, the comic villain created by the actor Mike Myers is shocked when he is told that $1 million isn’t a lot of money in 1997.
"Who Are the Richest of the Rich?" is from the February 21, 2017 Business section of The New York Times. It was written by Paul Sullivan and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
