Bay Area Billionaires Buy and Sell People Like You Every Day

Forbes came out with its annual list of People Who Can Buy More Things Than You, and the Chronicle was nice enough to parse out the Bay Area individuals who made the cut. There are 1,125 billionaires in the world and 101 of them live in California. Forty-seven of them are in the Bay Area, including the youngest billionaire in the world, 23-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Oracle founder Larry Ellison is the richest Bay Area resident with $25 billion. Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay, is the only area woman on the list. Forbes created a visual aid to help readers pinpoint where billionaires congregate in the United States and the result is a map that looks like it's covered in Metal Money Phalluses. Ours is about as big as New York. The rest of the country has confidence issues. — Andy Wright
