These 169 Billionaires “Aren’t Rich Enough” To Make The Forbes 400 Richest Americans 2017 List

Amazingly, now it takes $2 billion to make Forbes list of the 400 richest Americans in 2017. Well-known billionaires like Comcast’s Brian Roberts (net worth of $1.8 billion), Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg (net worth of $1.6 billion), Twitter’s Ev Williams (net worth of $1.46 billion), and Spanx’s Sara Blakely (net worth of $1.1 billion) aren’t rich enough to make the cut.

No individual on the list of the 400 Richest Americans had a net worth of less than $2 billion.

Sorry, you aren’t rich enough to be in the super-exclusive club of “400 Richest Americans.” – A record 169 billionaires failed to make the cut.
