The average net worth rose to $6.7 billion, up from $6 billion a year ago. The year before, he was ranked 156th.

"America's richest are richer than ever".

Forbes' list is once again topped by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates with a net worth of $89bn, followed by Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett.
