Bill Gates still richest man in America, Ballmer worth over $13 billion

Bill Gates is still the richest man in America, however the Forbes list of the 400 richest people in America shows that Steve Jobs has been overtaken by FaceBook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The legendary Gates, co founder and former CEO of Microsoft topped the list again with an estimated worth of $54 billion. Second on the list was Berkshire Hathaway CEO and Warren Buffett with $45 billion. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison was third with $27 billion.

Larry Page and Sergy Brin were 11th on the list with a worth of $15 billion. Michael Dell has a $14 billion fortune and Steve Ballmer made 16th slot with $13.1 billion. Surprisingly Steve Jobs is only (!) worth $6.1 billion, ranking number 42 on the list.

The biggest talking point however is the face that FaceBook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is worth $6.9 billion and last year he wasn’t even a billionaire.

KitGuru says: Facebook are obviously doing very well indeed, especially to make this list within a single year.
