313 Billionaires on Forbes 400

Wow, 313 of ’em now, including Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry E. Page (both at $4B)… Nice to see the rich get richer.

The combined net worth of the 400 rose $45 billion and reached $1 trillion this year for the first time since 2000, before the dot-com bust wiped out billions of dollars in wealth.

The biggest billionaire of all was again Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates (news – web sites), whose $48 billion in estimated wealth was up $2 billion from 2003. Gates was again followed by investor Warren Buffett (news – web sites) with $41 billion, the list’s biggest dollar gainer with a $5 billion increase, and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who held the No. 3 spot although his net worth fell $2 billion to $20 billion.
