I won’t tread back through the trope that formal and higher education is a waste of time – an idea supported by the isolation and celebration of stories of high school and college dropouts amassing huge hoards of money (again, click here for that).
I just reviewed the 2017 Forbes 400 and have updated information about the education levels of the people who made this year’s list (“Doctorate, Degree, or Dropout“).
Minimum net worth to make the list this year: $2,000,000,000.
Average net worth of the group: $6,700,000,000.
Take a look at how they compare to the US population overall and how the numbers compare to my roundup from nearly 6 years ago.
