Who are the wealthiest Americans in each state?



Our richest guy is richer than your richest guy! Real estate brokerage firm Movoto compiled a map of the wealthiest person in each state in the U.S.


Spoiler alert - we win. And by we, I mean Bill Gates, with a net worth of $80 billion.


Take a hard look at this map, there are a lot of incredibly interesting tidbits. For example, we all knew Gates was rich, but in comparison to his fellow Americans he blows them out of the water. The closest any other state comes to Gates' $80 billion is Warren Buffet, with $63.1 billion. Which is still almost $17 billion less than Gates.


Woefully underrepresented is the wealthy woman (although Walmart heiress Alice Walton of Texas makes an impressive $35 billion splash). It's also crazy to see how one state's version of wealthy can be so different from their neighbor - the richest man in Alaska has "only" $700 million.
