Fewer U. S. Billionaires. Are you one?

I'm still holding up my part of the deal, however I am not that much closer to being a billionaire.

The number of millionaires is on the decline in the United States, even as the number of wealthy individuals has increased worldwide.

Millionaire households in the United States decreased by 129,000 in 2011, according to a new study from the Boston Consulting Group. Globally, that figure grew by 175,000. The report defines these households as having over $1 million in cash, stock and other assets, excluding property, businesses and luxury goods.

Soooo - it's no longer keeping up the the Jones'. What's a good moniker for keeping pace with Asia?

Singapore has the highest % of millionaire households ! Would never have guessed it. Is that after the FB # 2 guy took Singapore citizenship or before?
