When you hear the name Bill Gates what comes to mind? Smart, technology Microsoft, that Lil’ Wayne song? Or do you think of money? Bill Gates is known for a lot of things because of how successful he has been in life and because of that success he has as good amount of money. Forbes 400 richest Americans was just released and Bill Gates claimed the number one spot for the 20th year in a row. As of now Bill Gates is worth around the sum of $72 Billion. $72 Billion is a lot of money if you think about it. You could buy anything in the world with that kind of money! This $72 Billion dollar figure is actually $6 billion more than what his net worth was in the year 2012.
In second place is business mogul Warren Buffet. This year he is worth $58.5 billion, which is more than $12.5 billion than what he had last year. The thing that stuns me is that there is a $13.5 billion difference between Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. You’re probably asking yourself how can you acquire this type of money just like I am at the moment. These men have worked hard for where they are at in my opinion and deserve it.
Other notable Forbes 400 Richest Americans are Mark Zuckerberg who came in as the 20th richest American with a net worth of $19 billion making him one of the youngest billionaires in the list only behind Dustin Moskovitz who is only a few days younger than Zuckerberg.
