Forbes tally grows to 1,226 billionaires globally
The world's billionaires saw some ups and downs but still worth $4.6 trillion total
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' One made the list on the strength of girdle sales, another powered by electric sports cars. Still others lost billions or fell off the list altogether thanks to the weak global economy and the gyrations of financial markets.

Forbes magazine released its annual tally of billionaires Wednesday, reporting that a record 1,226 people around the globe have a net worth in the ten digits. That's up 1 percent from last year's total.
