BEFORE BORIS JOHNSON was counting Brexit votes as Britain’s prime minister, he was boasting about another number as mayor of London. “We have now in London 72 billionaires, which is more than New York,” he said in an interview in 2014. “London is to the billionaire as the jungles of Sumatra are to the orangutan.” Although the city now claims some 95 billionaires, their millionaire cousins may be faring less well. In the past year, Britain lost 27,000 millionaires (measured in dollars) because of the weakening of the pound as a result of uncertainty over Brexit.Elsewhere their numbers are growing. There are now 46.8m dollar millionaires worldwide, according to this year’s “Global wealth report” by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, an increase of 1.1m from mid-2018.
