Forbes 2020 Billionaire Census by City

It's been a while since Ive seen a thread on this topic so here's an update.

So Forbes has this map you can navigate through that has the number of billionaires there are in individual areas. I combined them by CSA(for example, I combined NY and Fairfield county). I wish I was better versed at German metro configurations because there are so many close to each other but I wasnt sure if they could be considered a single area? Same goes for the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta, massive concentrations of billionaires but Im not sure about merging them.

I selected cities with 10 or more.

Forbes Billionaires by City, 2020:
134 New York
95 San Francisco
71 Hong Kong
70 Moscow
67 Beijing
62 Los Angeles
58 London
46 Shanghai
44 Shenzhen
40 Miami
38 Mumbai
30 Singapore
29 Guangzhou
28 Seoul
26 Hangzhou
24 Taipei
23 Dallas
19 Istanbul
19 Sao Paulo
18 Boston
18 Delhi
18 Paris
17 Bangkok
17 Tokyo
16 Chicago
16 Stockholm
15 Houston
15 Washington
14 Manila
14 Ningbo
13 Madrid
12 Atlanta
12 Bangalore
12 Chengdu
12 Toronto
11 Dubai
11 Geneva
11 Mexico City
11 Milan
11 Montreal
11 Seattle
11 Xiamen
10 Phoenix
10 Rio de Janeiro
10 Sydney
10 Tel Aviv

Here's the link to their interactive map: https://www.forbes.com/billionaires/

Here's North America's Areas by Forbes' own boundaries--before I merged a bunch of them together...
116 Greater New York Area
64 Greater San Francisco Area
55 Greater Los Angeles Area
37 Greater Palm Beach Area
25 Greater Palo Alto Area
23 Greater Dallas Area
16 Greater Boston Area
16 Greater Chicago Area
15 Greater Greenwich Area
15 Greater Houston Area
12 Atlanta, GA
12 Greater Washington DC Area
11 Mexico City, DF

5 Greater Bryn Mawr Area
5 Greater San Diego Area
5 Naples, FL
5 Vancouver, BC

It's crazy that they separate NY from Greenwich, CT, which is a suburb of NYC.

SF and Miami are out of control for cities their size.

For Canada, one really sees the legacy of Montreal having been the country's biggest city for two centuries. Even if Toronto now has 2 million more people and is the HQ for corporate Canada.

Surprised to see Toronto with such low numbers for being the premier city of Canada. It's on the level of Atlanta, Phoenix, and Seattle in the US.

Well I think it's telling that most of these cities are in countries that have much fewer regulations for speculation, monopolies, tax loopholes (i.e., the tools necessary to create billionaires), so it tends to skew against countries like Canada that value protections for the middle and lower classes. In an America that didn't have levels of class divisions not seen outside of 2nd world countries, NYC would have maybe 20-25 billionaires and not 134.

I sort of answered your question just above.

Philadelphia? Never heard of it. Is that near Bryn Mawr?


I see Pittsburgh isn't on the list. We had 4 in recent times but 2 died of old age and one new one moved his home & business here so we are currently at 3:
1.) Joe Hardy (84 Lumber)
2.) Stanley Druckenmiller (Financier)
3.) Thomas Tull (Movie studio, tech startups & prof sports owner)

I imagine Theresa Heinz is in that group as well.

I think she has houses all over the place, including Boston since that's been Kerry's home. But the family's home base estate is in Fox Chapel, just outside Pittsburgh city limits. I really have no idea what she considers her primary residence for tax purposes though.

Yeah that's a good point for these lists... surely most of these billionaires have homes in 10 different places.

Who's this? Is she related to ketchup? Good Lord, it is unfair that people producing that kind of processed food would grow so wealthy.
Regular Italian tomato paste is much better. Both healthier and tastier. Only, it takes more time and a bit more skills to cook it properly.
Hè, for example, pizza is not made up of ketchup, huh. The basic layer of sauce on your pizza is Italian tomato paste. Doesn't it taste better than ketchup? Dang, it does.
It's too bad that people don't have more time to cook for themselves and their loved ones, 'cause it's fun.

Otherwise, it'd be more relevant to have a gdp per capita ranking. Because who cares about billionaires?
I mean, even selling ketchup could make a billionaire of somebody.
It's just funny!

She married into the Heinz family... yes, the ketchup... and about a thousand other food products over the last nearly 2 centuries. A company that is now global conglomerate Kraft Heinz, making yes, billions of $ from mostly processed crap.

Although, who uses ketchup instead of real tomato sauce on their pizza? (I've never heard of anyone doing that.)

Ben oui, that's what I said, didn't I? Ketchup is prohibited to pizza, legit pasta, lasagne...
Even in the US, they wouldn't do it. Their pizza is very decent, eh.

What is ketchup used for, then? Idk. Some hamburgers and fries, admittedly.
Ketchup is still much better than mayonnaise (that's way too fat) in fries.
