The ‘Poorest Rich Man’ Lives in Wyoming
A new study is out that shows the richest person in each U.S. state. The head of the list is a no brainer. Washington's richest person is obviously Bill Gates. Nebraska's is obviously Warren Buffett.
--But the list gets more interesting toward the bottom. Which five states have the "poorest" richest person? Here's the answer:
#1.) Wyoming. John Martin, the chairman and CEO, is the poorest rich person on the list. He's 'only' worth $210 Million.
#2.) Vermont. Robert Stiller is the founder of Green Mountain Coffee. He's worth $580 Million . . . three times more than Wyoming's richest guy.
#3.) New Hampshire. Martin Trust is a businessman worth $600 Million.
#4.) Hawaii. Jay Shidler is a real estate developer worth $680 Million.
#5.) Alaska. Even with all the oil in Alaska, the richest person is Robert Gillam, who's the president and CEO of a capital management company. He's worth $690 Million.
