Forbes top 400

A nine-figure fortune won’t get you much mention these days, at least not here.

This year, for the first time, everyone in The Forbes 400 has at least $1 billion. The collective net worth of the nation’s wealthiest climbed $120 billion, to $1.25 trillion.

Surging real estate, oil and other asset prices paved the way for 28 new members and 14 returnees. More...

There was a 27 way tie for last, all of them billionaires, in fact 5 billionaires were omitted !

The Top Ten

  1. William H. Gates III
  2. Warren E. Buffett
  3. Sheldon Adelson
  4. Lawrence J. Ellison
  5. Paul G. Allen
  6. Jim C Walton
  7. Christy Walton
  8. S. Robson Walton
  9. Michael Dell
  10. Alice L. Walton
