Bill Gates is on one hell of streak. He has been the richest American for two decades straight. And this year, he’s listed as the richest person in world in the Forbes 400 (can you imagine having that kind of money and still being stuck using a Windows Phone?). Life has been good at the top over the past few years. “The 400 wealthiest Americans are worth a record $2.02 trillion, roughly equivalent to the GDP of Russia. That is a gain of $300 billion from a year ago, and more than double a decade ago. The average net worth of list members is a staggering $5 billion, $800 million more than a year ago and also a record.”

+ These are this year’s newcomers to the Forbes 400 list.
