"Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has joined the ranks of the richest Americans, earning a spot on this year’s Forbes 400 list of the nation’s wealthiest people," reports Indianapolis Business Journal.
"Irsay, 50, ranked 347th with an estimated net worth of about $1.1 billion, according to the list released Wednesday.
"Other Hoosiers on the list include Cook Group patriarch Bill Cook, at No. 85 with $3.5 billion; White Lodging chief Dean White, No. 202 with $1.75 billion; and Simon Property Group co-founder Herb Simon, No. 317 with $1.25 billion."
Of those four, this Indianapolis Observer notes that three have received taxpayer-paid subsidies. Guess we all have a stake in their prosperity!
