The Forbes 500 list of wealthiest Americans has many names, including Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Peter Thiel, Warren Buffet, Warren’s wife, and her husband, Bill Gates.
But none has been as well-known as Warren Bezos, the CEO of Bezos Wealth, the private wealth management firm he co-founded with his father.
Forbes Magazine named Bezos its 2010 Man of the Year, and the Forbes 500 ranked him No. 1 on its list of the wealthiest Americans.
In 2015, Forbes named him one of the “10 Most Influential People of 2017.”
His wealth has been described as “the most concentrated wealth in America” by Forbes magazine.
Forbes also ranked him the top-earning American billionaire.
The New York Times said in 2017 that Bezos was worth an estimated $18.5 billion, including an estimated net worth of $14 billion, according to his most recent financial statements.
But the most famous and highest-profile name on the list is Warren Buffett.
The Omaha, Nebraska, billionaire has a net worth that Forbes estimates is $24.6 billion.
But Buffett has never disclosed his net worth, even though it has been publicly known for some time.
Buffett and Bezos have been on different paths to wealth over the years.
Buffett has been known to make lavish payments to his foundation, and he’s been the subject of many lawsuits from creditors.
But Bezos has had little trouble accumulating wealth.
Forbes estimates his net wealth to be $2.5 trillion.
Bezos is the second richest American billionaire behind Warren Buffett who has $6.7 trillion.
Forbes lists the following five billionaires on the Forbes list of richest Americans: Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, worth an astonishing $78.9 billion; Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway, worth $9.7 billion; Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com, worth a cool $21.7 million; and Peter Thiel of PayPal, worth almost $17.6 million.
But they are only part of the wealth.
Some of the richest people in the world are worth tens of billions of dollars.
In the United States, the top 1% of Americans have an estimated wealth of $10.6 trillion.
The top 0.01% of the population has an estimated worth of less than $3.5 million.
As of 2018, the world’s richest 1% has an average net worth worth of over $100 billion.
