San Fransicco is more much white collar than Los Angeles. Same with Orange County.

Its great you have pride for our state, but its not "kumbaya, kumbaya, we are the wealthiest state in the nation, kumbaya."

The general population of San Francisco hates Los Angeles and grimace whenever hearing the name Los Angeles, and Orange County residents see Los Angeles as an overgrown run-down ghetto. Its a very divided state

I'm just being honest here.
When your the biggest, everyone else is always going to have something to say. LA should be used to it by now.

Who cares about the state? It's all about the city.
Do you realize that the population of a state is irrelevant when talking about where billionaires CHOOSE to live? Please, explain to me how the population of California has any bearing on these figures.

Milky, every time a New Yorker makes a post, you always have to jump in and dog us. But, hey, that's what we get when our city is on top of the world, kind of like a World Capital, one with the most billionaires. We all know how desperate you are to have the #1 spot that New York holds around the world, but you'll never have it. Go, little man, get out of my way, and take your itty bitty city with you.
Please, provide me with the statistics that say New York has the most billionaires.

It's extremely relevant. When a state has twice as many people, I'd expect them to have more billionaires. San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego are all bigger cities than Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, NY. How is comparing San Diego fair when comparing it to Buffalo?

Honestly, I really don't care what STATE has the most billionaires. I'm all about the cities. And New York City has more billionaires, by far. I don't care about the billionaire living in Niagara Falls. S/he is living 400 miles away from me.

City or state? State-wise, California will have us beat, of course. However, city-wise, New York owns.

However if this thread were titled "BosWash has 10% of the world's billionaires", which it does btw, I suspect youd be singing a different tune.

Do you read?

Look them each up on Forbes. Every single one of those billionaires are from California or made their money in California. It's not as if they made their money in Nebraska and ran to California. That's not how it works sweetie. Heck, even the most unglamorous states have their fair share of billionaires.

You know, the super-wealthy don't relocate like the lower-classes do. There is no need.

How about you look it up yourself? Why would he go through the trouble to "provide you the statistics" when you can easily look them up yourself? You can read, right?

New York is money mecca.
