usamap


The richest of the rich in America make more money than most of us could ever fathom. This map, which was put together by Movoto, shows the richest people in each of the 50 states.


Bill Gates obviously comes in at the top spot with a staggering $80 billion dollars in Washington, while Robert Gillam from Alaska finds himself at the bottom with a mere $700 million – hardly a figure worthy of the β€˜caboose’ title.

Since the names on the map are a little hard to read, below is a list of the names of our nations richest by state, in alphabetical order.

Alabama: Marguerite Harbert – $1 Billion
Alaska: Robert Gillam – $700 Million
Arizona: Bruce Halle – $4.8 Billion
Arkansas: Jim Walton – $35.7 Billion
California: Larry Ellison – $49.4 Billion
Colorado: Charles Ergen – $15 Billion
Connecticut: Ray Dalio – $14.4 Billion
Delaware: Robert Gore – $830 Million
Florida: Charles Johnson – $8.1 Billion
Georgia: Anne Cox Chambers – $16.1 Billion
Hawaii: Pierre Omidyar – $7.9 Billion
Idaho: Frank VanderSloot – $1.2 Billion
Illinois: Ken Griffin – $5.5 Billion
Indiana: Gayle Cook – $6 Billion
Iowa: Harry Stine – $3.1 Billion
Kansas: Charles Koch – $41.4 Billion
Kentucky: Bradley Hughes – $2.3 Billion
Louisiana: Tom Benson – $1.5 Billion
Maine: Leon Gorman – $860 Million
Maryland: Ted Lerner – $4.6 Billion

Virginia: Jacqueline Mars – $20 Billion
Washington: Bill Gates – $80 Billion
West Virginia: Jim Justice – $1.6 Billion

Exit thought: Most people got on this list by either being an entrepreneur, an heir/heiress, or a widow.

You make people leave CM. You drive them away. There is a meaness and coldness in you that pushes people away and makes them cancel their CM accounts. I know a few of them.

The women in mass sounds like her family made good investments and probably one of the reasons a lot of the historical sites were saved and still look good.
