The 400 richest Americans requires the minimum amount of about $1.7 billion in 2016 – but 22 new billionaires joined The Forbes 400 club this year.

“More than two-thirds of them lucked into it, inheriting at least some of their wealth”, Forbes said in the new release.

Seven was said to have hit the jackpot on their own, selling everything from plastics to beverages to hair care products. Others owed their fortunes to familiar brands such as Facebook, Publix, Cargill and U-Haul
