I like the 5 Newport Beach ones....

Who are they?

Funny, the image I used pointed off to the graphic article and not the article I stashed!  The link is the bottom one:

Newport Beach is:

72. Donald Bren: $12.5B, Newport Beach

550. Bill Gross: $2.6B, Newport Beach

714. George Argyros, $2.1B, Newport Beach

1117. Henry Samueli, $1.3B, Newport Beach

1274. Henry Nicholas III, $1.1B, Newport Coast

We're working on making source links editable soon.

Ok, I recognize the founders of Broadcom and Bill Gross is the idealab guy. Who are the others?

Also, idealab is in Pasadena. He commutes from OC to Pasadena???

The other two are real-estate guys.  Bren donates huge amounts of money to the UCI computer science school--in fact it's called the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Science.  I've met 3 out of the 5. 

I had no idea: "The Russian capital – known for its oligarch ghettos and glitzy boutiques - can boast 76 dollar billionaires, compared to New York's 70 and Hong Kong's 54. London comes fifth with 40, just behind Beijing with 41."

The SF Bay Area is not in the top 5?!

Also surprising: 2/3 are self made, and only 10% are women.
