Forbes has released its annual list of billionaires, so it’s time to remember that even if progressive politicians ate the rich, it would hardly assuage their hunger. President Biden’s recent budget includes a disguised wealth tax for centimillionaires, and he’s always whispering into the mic that people have to pay their “fair share.”
Well, the US has 735 billionaires according to Forbes. Their combined fortune is $4.7 trillion. This is based on stock values as of March 11th. It also considers “a variety of assets, including private businesses, real estate, art and more.” One caveat is that Forbes doesn’t “pretend to know every billionaire’s personal balance sheet,” so we can’t say how many stingray tanks and volcanic caves are missing.
