Forbes is pretty much the authority when it comes to really wealthy people and their doings. Recently, they tweeted out this map that listed the richest person in each state. Texas, while you may have thought would be someone from the oil and gas industry, is home to Alice Walton.
Yep, a direct descendant of Wal-Mart. She is worth a stunning $33.3 billion dollars.
Forbes added, “In total, Forbes hunted down 54 tycoons (four states had ties) worth a total of $682 billion. Their fortunes average $12.6 billion, and all but eight of them are billionaires. They made money in industries as distinct as the places they call home. Eight got rich in finance and investments, another eight struck gold in fashion and retail, and six forged their fortunes in the food and beverage industry.”
