The geography of wealth inequality doesn’t get much attention. But it’s stark. There are about 450 billionaires with American citizenship — and almost 200 of them live in New York and California.

Less well known are Leslie Wexler, CEO of the L Brands corporation and, with $5.7 billion, the richest man in Ohio. Anne Cox Chambers, who holds a controlling interest in Cox Enterprises and, with an estimated net worth of $15.5 billion, is the richest person in Atlanta.
