It's been a good year for the 1 percent. Or maybe the 0.01 percent.
Forbes reports its yearly list of billionaires is longer than ever, with 2,043 people worth more than $1 billion. That's 233 more than its 2016 count, the biggest jump in the history of the publication's list.
Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, retained his position atop the list, worth $86 billion. Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, had the biggest increase, adding $27.6 billion to his net worth, now $72.8 billion.
