MiamiHerald / Yes, the rich are getting richer – at least cumulatively speaking.
According to the released Forbes 400 list of richest Americans released Tuesday, the combined net worth of this year’s 400 is $2.7 trillion, up from last year’s $2.4 trillion. Making the list now requires a minimum of $2 billion in holdings, up from $1.7 billion last year.
Once again, the top five slots are held by perennial billionaires Bill Gates of Microsoft fame ($89 billion, up $8 billion from 2016), Amazon’s Jeff Bezos ($81.5 billion, up $14.5 billion), Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett ($78 billion, up $12.5 billion), Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg ($71 billion, up $15.5 billion) and Oracle’s Larry Ellison ($59 billion, up $9.7 billion).
