Forbes Magazine has always been a trusted media source, typically highlighting finances and the people behind the money.

Whether these individuals started a company or inherited one, they have to be pretty dang good at what they do to make the Forbes 400 list. Maybe they got together with some friends, came up with a brilliant idea and now are incredibly rich. Either way, the Forbes 400 shows us who the richest people in America are.
