Just in case you wanted to know, Kevin Short’s list of the richest people in the country– by state:
Washington resident and Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ $80 billion net worth makes him the richest person in the country (and the world). The least rich individual on the map is Robert Gillam, founder of McKinley Capital, an Alaska-based institutional investment firm. But don’t feel too bad for him — he’s worth a cool $700 million.
Interestingly, the Waltons of Walmart fame, are tops in Arkansas, Texas, and Wyoming, while Kansan David Koch is New York’s richest.
