Bill Gates tops 2012 Forbes list of richest people in America

Forbes today released its 2012 ranking of America's richest 400 billionaires...and Bill Gates remains the nation’s richest man for the 19th year running. See the top 10 below...

1. Bill Gates, Medina, Wash., $66 billion
2. Warren Buffett, Omaha, $46 billion
3. Larry Ellison, Woodside, Calif., $41 billion
4. Charles Koch, Wichita, Kan., $31 billion
5. David Koch, New York City, $31 billion
6. Christy Walton & family, Jackson, Wyo., $27.9 billion
7. Jim Walton, Bentonville, Ark., $26.8 billion
8. Alice Walton, Fort Worth, Texas, $26.3 billion
9. S. Robson Walton, Bentonville, Ark., $26.1 billion
10. Michael Bloomberg, New York City, $25 billion
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg was the biggest dollar loser. The company’s lackluster IPO in May resulted in a huge drop in market value that cut the value of his shareholdings almost in half, costing him $8.1 billion in net worth. That dropped Zuckerberg from No. 14 on the list to No. 36. See more at Forbes.com

Insanely Wealthy people can't shout and the bulk of them treasure their privacy so you won't be seeing 'em on Cribs.

Keep your eyes peeled cos Zibah's name would soon be on that list (on 2nd thought, I would rather be another anonymous billionaire)

It is not the amount of money one has that matters but how many lives he/she touches positively with the money that matters. I believe one day my name shall be in list of the world richest people.

@ ALEX
It's AMERICA's richest, not the world's richest.

Attention to detail my friend.

@Alex...
Carlos Slim Elu is a Mexican citizen.
That is, He's from Mexico.
Mexico na em Papa land.
Linda posted the list of richest men in United States of America(God's Own Country).
Just as Dangote is the richest man in Nigeria but not in India.
