Palm Beach's Wealthiest Make Forbes 400 List of Filthy-Rich People

Categories: Palm Beach News

mr-burns.jpg released its list of the 400 People Who Have So Much More Money Than You, It's Really Not Even Funny List for 2013, and Palm Beach residents are all over that thing.

In all, 27 rich Palm Beachers made Forbes' list, including the Koch Twins.

David Koch, the 73-year-old executive vice president of Koch Industries and South Florida's richest dude, obviously made the list. He also added $5 billion to his net worth of $36 billion, which buys you a lot of Pop-Tarts, if you really, really love Pop-Tarts.

Twin bro William, an energy magnate and investor, is worth $3.8 billion. So he too made the list.


Jack Taylor, who owns Enterprise Rent-a-Car, is also high on the list with a net worth of $11.4 billion. He's also 91, basically making him the Mr. Burns of Palm Beach County.

In other words, Forbes is telling America what we already know. Palm Beach is rich, yo!

.........................and how many times has theDONALD filed bankruptcy and screwed creditors and vendors and employees and partners ?

IF the DONALD is so rich then why doesn't he pay his bills ?

is NOT that they are uber-wealthy really it is HOW they became that way - and a significant number of these people did NOTHING but INHERIT a base of wealth that grew and would have grown with or without them

for example, KOCH industries paternal founder grew wealthy by striping the value of natural resources out of third world countries in shady deals leaving enormous pollution and sickness behind then abandoning those people to wallow in their misery - miners who suffered catastrophic loss due to illness and disease borne of the dangerous and deadly work of mining - literally sucking the guts out of an entire poverty stricken yet resource rich third world country = and today these two stoogies did nothing but have the right father bring them into the world

it's the same story with a number of the others as well

good for them ... how bout they pay some taxes!



Everyone has a chance to be on this list.  invent the next facebook, pizza chain, or whatever...

Unlike many other countries, where you never have a chance to become rich. 

how and where they made their money is the more important detail.  -tax what you want less of.

(+ when was the last time a poor man gave you a job)
