There is no possible way that Frankfurt has twice the millionaires as LA.

I don't even think it would be possible for Frankfurt to have 25% of LA's millionaires. It isn't even the richest city in Germany, and has around 600k in the city and a few million in the metro.
Our NOLA101 strikes again..... in Dramatic splendor So NYC IS NOT TO YOUR LIKING TOO? You did not comment on CHICAGO? WOW its a good sight then . It's only nonsense if NYC isn't #1 and Chicago NOT waaayyy down on the list . For you !

480 people have more than $30 million in Fresno? And they choose to stay in Fresno? Almost half of the total ultra-high wealth people in Miami(which you assume if this for metro areas and would include Miami Beach, would be much more).

Are we sure they weren't talking about 30 million pesos?
