The latest “The Forbes 400” list is spectacular in several ways. First, the combined wealth of the richest 400 Americans nears $2.4 trillion, which is the largest sum ever reported by the famous business magazine.
Second, the net worth of every single person on that list is around 5.8 billion, which is the largest ever reported, but a slight increase from last year’s $5.7 billion. Half of America’s 400 richest folks saw their net worth climb this year, while the other half had some losses.
