    Default multimillionaires vs billionaries

    Are "multimillionaires" and "billionaries" interchangeable? Or is the former richer than the latter as mathematically the latter is about 1000 times richer?

    18)..are men and women in their 30s and 40s who have become multimillionaires and billionaries during the past decade...

    Er ... a billion is a thousand million (these days). You can be a multimillionaire with 100 million, but that doesn't make you a billionaire.

    You've got it the wrong way round, keannu.

    Multimillionaires have more that one million, but not as much as billionaires, who have 1,000 million.
