While Forbes magazine recently listed the world's richest people, only six Minnesotans made the list. So who are the richest people here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes?


Well, according this year's Forbes list, the three richest people in Minnesota are the same as the three richest people last year.

(And, if you're curious, out of our entire state population of nearly 5.5 million, the 6 billionaires make up about 0.00001 percent, according to this Go-Mn story.)

So who are they? Well, the richest person in Minnesota is once again former Cargill CEO, Whitney MacMillan. The story noted that his net worth clocks in at a cool $5.6 billion, according to Forbes, putting him 275th on the list.

Second richest in Minnesota is once again Stanley Hubbard, whose Hubbard Broadcasting helping earn a net worth of $2.3 billion.

And third richest person here in the North Star State is once again the owner of the Timberwolves, Lynx and the Star Tribune-- Mankato's own Glen Taylor. He's worth $1.85 billion, according to the Forbes list.

Not bad. But as rich as they are, even their net worths pale in comparison to Bill Gates, whose $86 billion net worth once again makes him the richest person in the world.

Must be nice!
