Who are the 21 richest people in DFW?
Mark Cuban and Jerry Jones remain on the list.
Of Forbes' list of America's 400 richest people, the least rich North Texan on that list is Ross Perot Jr., with $1.8 billion. (Just $1.8 bil.) On the other end, the richest DFW resident on Forbes' list is Wal-Mart heir Alice Walton, with a whopping $33.5 billion net worth. She is No. 8 on their list of 400 richest people.
No one could catch up with Bill Gates, who clocked in as the country's richest, with $72 billion to his name. He's claimed the No. 1 spot for 20 years.
The 21 North Texans from the list have made their fortunes all sorts of ways -- by inheriting it, like Walton; in oil and gas, like Ray Lee Hunt; or with dot-com success, like Mark Cuban. Noticeably missing from the Forbes list for the first time since 2005 is T. Boone Pickens, who Business Insider says is no longer a billionaire.
"This isn't to say that Pickens is poor," the story notes: He's worth $950 million.
