Forbes magazine published its 2020 global Rich List this week and the Murdoch family was top of the pops amongst the Australians with a valuation of US$14.9 billion (A$23.9 billion).

Forbes reckons there are only 67 families or individuals on the planet who are richer than the Murdochs and their family profile provides a useful daily tracker of wealth based on share price movements.

Even though the Murdoch pile may have declined from the peak Forbes valuation of US$19.4 billion (A$31.1 billion) in March 2019, the family still clearly has plenty of scope to be generous during the COVID-19 crisis.
