Seem­ingly as in­evitable as death and taxes, the rich once again have grown richer. Since 2009, the min­i­mum net worth to make our an­nual rank­ing of the 400 wealth­i­est Amer­i­cans has steadily in­creased to a record $2.1 bil­lion. Even with this lofty price of ad­mis­sion, we wel­comed 15 new­com­ers, in­clud­ing Drew Hous­ton, CEO of on­line file-shar­ing firm Drop­box, and Thai Lee, an im­mi­grant from South Korea who built a gi­ant IT re­seller. Sev­en­teen from last year’s list dropped out of the ranks. A record 204 bil­lion­aires were not wealthy enough to make the cut this year.
