In Forbes new Billionaires List for 2023, you'll see some incredibly wealthy individuals. In Illinois, there's no one even close to Lukas Walton who's worth an estimated (you might want to sit down for this) $21.2 billion dollars. How much is that exactly? When you write it out, it's daunting.


Excuse me while I pick up my jaw off of the floor. It's worth mentioning that the entire Walton family use much of their wealth to help out the less fortunate through their foundation so well done.

So Lukas Walton is richer than even Indiana Jones?

Yes, he very much is. Indiana Jones (aka Harrison Ford) has a net worth of $300 million in 2023 according to Parade Magazine. That's still a lot of money, but it's not Lukas Walton kind of money. Even my admittedly limited math skills can figure out that's actually more than 7 times Indiana Jones.

Side note: Indiana Jones (aka Harrison Ford) spent his childhood in Park Ridge, Illinois. I hear they don't have that many snakes there either.

Oh, and this will make you feel better. I just checked the Forbes Billionaires List which is updated in real-time and Lukas Walton is now worth over $22 billion as of this writing. The rich get richer saying has never been more true than it is today.
