Corrections & clarifications
Figures in the chart accompanying yesterday's front-page report, 'Tycoons take hit in no-longer-quite-so-rich list', were inadvertently transposed, though the bars in the chart were of the right proportions. In addition, the chart said the figures were in Hong Kong dollars, not US dollars. As the report correctly stated, Li Ka-shing's net worth, according to Forbes Asia, was US$32 billion in 2008 and US$16.2 billion this year, the Kwok brothers' combined net worth was US$24 billion last year and US$10.8 billion this year, and Lee Shau-kee's net worth was US$23 billion last year and US$9 billion this year. We apologise for the errors.
