Britain regaining superpower status?

For years the US has been the center of the universe for the wealthy & elite. Is that title moving back to Europe, and (indirectly) India?

India-born steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal tops British rich list - Yahoo! News: "In its 104-page supplement, the Sunday Times said the wealth of Britain's richest 1,000 people now stands at a record 300.9 billion pounds, up from 249.6 billion pounds last year -- a rise of more than 20 percent.
This represents one of the biggest year-on-year increases since the Rich List -- based on 'identifiable wealth' such as real estate, art and shareholdings, but not bank accounts -- was first published in 1989."
