Every year, Forbes compiles a list of the richest people in the country. This year is no different.

"America's superrich are riding high again. After losing a collective $500 billion last year, the nation’s 400 wealthiest people have gained it all back. This elite set is now worth $4.5 trillion in aggregate, tying a record set in 2021, and it takes $2.9 billion to make The Forbes 400, another tied record. Half the gains came from rebounding technology stocks. Eight tech moguls added $10 billion or more to their fortunes. One name you won’t see: Donald Trump. The ex-president’s fortune fell 19% to $2.6 billion. Net worths were calculated using stock prices from September 8, 2023. "

It is truly insane how much money these people on this list have.

"The wealthiest people in the U.S. are as wealthy as ever—and the cutoff to make the list now stands at a record-tying $2.9 billion."
