A new study is out that shows the richest person in each U.S. state.  The head of the list is a no brainer.  Washington’s richest person is obviously Bill Gates.  Nebraska’s is obviously Warren Buffett.

–But the list gets more interesting toward the bottom.  Which five states have the “poorest” richest person?  Here’s the answer:

#1.)  Wyoming.  John Martin, the chairman and CEO, is the poorest rich person on the list.  He’s ‘only’ worth $210 Million.

#2.)  Vermont.  Robert Stiller is the founder of Green Mountain Coffee.  He’s worth $580 Million . . . three times more than Wyoming’s richest guy.

#3.)  New Hampshire.  Martin Trust is a businessman worth $600 Million.

#4.)  Hawaii.  Jay Shidler is a real estate developer worth $680 Million.

#5.)  Alaska.  Even with all the oil in Alaska, the richest person is Robert Gillam, who’s the president and CEO of a capital management company.  He’s worth $690 Million.
