Forbes Releases Richest Americans List
Monday, September 24, 2007
Last week, Forbes released their list of the Top 400 Richest Americans. This is one list that I will not be on, not because I am not rich, (although not motivated by money, I strive to be and will be) but I won't be on this list because I am Canadian ;) ... on that note we should point out that it's been a strong year for the Canadian dollar as we have reached par with the US dollar.

Interesting to note that the Google Guys enter the list in spots #5 and #6 with an estimated worth of $18.5 billion each. Here's a look at the creme de la creme in the US of A.
