In September last year, the column listed the 35 people from Santa Catarina in the ranking of Brazilian billionaires from Forbes. That research, however, considered the wealth accumulated in the national currency, the Real. This one now takes into account assets in dollars and counts 2,781 people around the world (See the full list here).

The fact that the exchange rate for the American currency is practically 1 to 5 (each dollar is equivalent to around 5 reais) explains the smaller number of people from Santa Catarina in the new ranking.
