When we run down the list of wealthiest Americans, we find a striking fact: around half of them are Jews. Among the top ten, we find five Jews: Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Larry Ellison, and Michael Bloomberg. Of the top 50 richest men, at least 27 are Jews, including Steve Ballmer, Michael Dell, Carl Icahn, David Newhouse, Micki Arison, and Stephen Ross.[4] The combined wealth of these 27 individuals comes to roughly $635 billion.
