David Koch: The Wealthiest New Yorker

According to the latest Forbes 400 list of wealthiest people in the world, David Koch is ranked as the 5th wealthiest man in the world (Forbes lists his brother Charles as 4th, but lists Charles' residence as Wichita, Kansas).

The estimated wealth, by Forbes, of the Koch brothers is $21.5 billion each.

David's climb to the number 5 spot results in his supplanting Mayor Bloomberg as the wealthiest New Yorker. Bloomberg is ranked 10th, with an estimated wealth of only $18 billion.

  1. Good work on the Koch's. I found Forbes estimate of Carlyle cofounders' wealth odd, especially in light of massive flipping in 2010.

    I ran across a flurry of political donations, the kind the Koch's are known for. FYI.
