Seriously rich and all-American, here are 10 billionaires who call the United States home. These lucky handful have benefited greatly from the land of freedom, but mostly because they (or their parents) were innovative enough, hard-working enough, and persistent enough to make sure their American dreams rang true; and these were dreams which ended up ringing in some impressive fortunes along with their success. Can you guess how many women made it to this list?
10. Larry Page – Net Worth $33.3 Billion
In case you forgot about this guy, Larry Page along with fellow Stanford Ph.D. student Sergey Brin cofounded Google in 1998. CEO until 2001 and now again leading the company since 2011, Page is actually CEO of Alphabet, a new publicly traded parent company that includes Google, the Google X lab, and such businesses as Calico, Nest and Fiber. This billionaire is using his money to set some very green examples as a clean energy advocate; his homes in Palo Alto uses fuel cells, geothermal energy, and rainwater capture, representing the newest and cleanest home-energy tech!
