 Li Ka-Shing, Asia’s richest man, lost $569 million and Lakshmi Mittal, the Indian steel titan, saw $522 million disappear from his books.The Facebook billionaires Mark Zuckerberg andDustin Moskovitz both continued their downward march. The company closed at a new low of $28.19, costing the pair of founders a combined $395 million. This is after losing billions yesterday.

Easy come easy go.
