Bloomberg Has A Lot of Billions
September 17th, 2008

It would take the average New Yorker a week and a half to earn a $1,000 paycheck. Mayor Michael Bloomberg does it in 3.7 seconds.

The latest assessment of Bloombergs net worth from Forbes has come in at $20 billion. Thats billion with a B.

In the last five years, while his gaze was turned on philanthropy it’s arguably now focused on term limits the mayor gave away $800 million.

All this means hes the eighth richest person in the United States. Bill Gates was number one.

For the rest of the Forbes ranking, go here.
