    The Five Largest Landowners in America

    A ranch in Wyoming.

     

     

    Maybe 270,000 acres isn't what it used to be.

    Two billionaire brothers from Texas recently bought 177,000 acres of ranch land in Montana, bringing their total land holdings in the state to more than 276,000. The brothers, Farris and Dan Wilks, who made their money from selling Frac Tech (the oil business), now own 431 square miles in Montana.

    As large as that sounds, their purchases still don't rank them in the top 10 individual or family landowners in America. In fact, they would barely crack the top 30. 

    With land prices rebounding, and wealthy families looking for tangible assets, large tracts of land have become increasingly attractive investments. Many of the wealthy are still scarred by the market drop of 2008 and want more stable assets.

    Some use the land for working ranches. Others use it for agriculture, timber or other sources of income.

    "There's a lot more interest in land," said Dennis Moon, managing director and head of specialty asset management at U.S. Trust, a division of Bank of America. ""Way back when, owning a lot of land meant you were among the wealthiest individuals in the United States. We're kind of seeing a return to that."

    Moon said that the key driver for land buying is production - whether it's producing crops or timber or beef.

    "Then if you add to that the recreation use, where you can hunt or fish and things like that, it's appealing," he said.

    But the land rush among the wealthy has led to ever-larger holdings by ever-richer landholders. Here, according to the Land Report 100, are the top five landholders in America and their holdings as of 2012.

     

    1. John Malone The cable tycoon has 2.2 million acres stretching from Wyoming to Maine. One of his crown jewels is the Bell Ranch, a 290,100-acre cattle empire.

     

    2. Ted Turner The media magnate has 2 million acres in Nebraska, New Mexico and other states. He is a strong advocate of wildlife conservation.

     

    3. The Emmerson family This low-profile family holds 1.8 million acres through Sierra Pacific Industries, the nation's second largest lumber producer.

     

    4. Brad Kelley The reclusive billionaire, who drives a pick-up truck and made his money from discount cigarettes, owns about 1.5 million acres and uses much of it for cattle ranching.

     

    5. The Irving family The Canadian forestry family behind J.D. Irving Inc. owns 1.2 million acres in Maine and other locations. This year alone, J.D. Irving will plan 30 million seedlings.

              If you had a half a billion dollars, what would you do with it?

                             

              Ahh, what I would do if I had a half a billion dollars.

               I would sit down and absorb it all in meditation!

              I would go into hiding, and find a safe place to live. 

              Let my closest relatives know where to find me.

              Find  secured banks. Put money in different accounts.

               I would get a higher Insurance Policy.

               Pay all my bills.  Give some to my 2 sisters.

               I would figure how keep from having to pay it all back in taxes.

               Give some to charities of my choice.

                Half a Billion, wow.

                I would take care of all family members, start college funds for all the kids, Buy a very large chunk of land, have a survival compound built, get a housekeeper, chef, massage therapist, I would have an indoor pool, shooting range, greenhouses, and a music collection that my wildest dreams can't believe.

                        New Congress even wealthier after millionaire freshmen join its ranks

                        Reuters/Kevin Lamarque
                        Reuters/Kevin Lamarque
                        January 17, 2013

                        The 113th Congress has become wealthier than the last, with incoming freshmen bringing in a median net worth of $1,066,515 each -- about $1 million more than that of the average American.

                        While US citizens are getting poorer and increasingly applying for food stamps, the nation’s legislators are getting richer. Freshmen members of the 113th Congress have a median net worth that is about $100,000 higher than the net worth of all congressional members combined. All 535 members of Congress are worth an average $966,001 each, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

                        A typical American household has a net worth of about $66,740 – a value that has been declining since the start of the most recent recession. Between 2007 and 2010, the median net worth of American households sank 47.1 percent. Food stamp enrollment increased by 15.5 million since 2009 and recent job creation figures show that low-paying jobs have largely replaced higher paying ones.

                        At a time when the majority is struggling financially, the nation’s leaders are accumulating more wealth.

                        “What’s [hard] to measure is whether these new legislators appreciate the financial pain people face and can effectively represent them despite the fact that they themselves are well off,” Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, told Open Secrets.

                        Almost 50 percent of the lawmakers have a net worth of more than $1 million, the wealthiest of which, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), was worth more than $500 million in 2011 and could be worth more than that today.

                        "Often people focus on who's up, who's down and the number of millionaires in Congress. And of course we should monitor how representative our legislature is and whether someone is getting rich while in public office – and why,"Krumholz said, adding that many of these legislators invest in companies and could therefore also have conflicts of interests.

                        Adding the average net worth of each member of Congress comes out to about $4.5 billion. With many of its members being in the nation's top "one percent", the legislators' rising incomes illustrate the increasing income gap during a time of economic struggles.

                        Americans living below the poverty line rose to 49.7 million last year – a record high which equates to 16 percent of the population. A recent study also shows that the US income gap is worse today than it was in 1774.

                        “The era when Washington economists and politicians could dismiss inequality as a second or third-tier issue may be ending,” wrote National Journal writer Jonathan Rauch. “And progressives, potentially, have a case against inequality that might put accusations of ‘class warfare’ and ‘politics of envy’ behind them.”

                              If you own a garage, chances are it's a closet that just happens to be big enough to hold your car. Maybe you've dressed it up with a TV or couches; maybe it's a true workspace with the tools and grease as proof.

                              But no garage looks like this one, built by a Los Angeles designer and architect as the centerpiece of a stylish house overlooking the Pacific Ocean — with a Ferrari 512 BBi as its inspiration.

                              Holger Schubert spent several years and more than $1.5 million renovating his Los Angeles home around his Ferrari, surviving battles with zoning officials and upset neighbors who threatened to shut the project down. The result was a garage like no other in the world, with dramatic views and a minimalist approach that would make a penny on the floor feel like clutter.

                              "All the attention is on the car," Schubert tells video producers Petrolicious in the new short film below. "There's nothing that takes away from the car. It's a blank white canvas with a piece of art in front of it."

                              The only thing Schubert's award-winning garage space has in common with the typical suburban variety is a concrete floor. The Ferrari rests on an aluminum ramp that can be tilted by remote control 10 degrees, so that Schubert can roll out without having to start the Ferrari next to the couch. Outside, Schubert built a glass-enclosed 16-foot bridge to the street, which was so controversial that some neighbors petitioned the city to order it knocked down in 2010.

                              As Schubert describes it, all of this effort was due to his attachment to the Ferrari; he searched for years before finding the exact 512 BBi he wanted. It's an unusual choice; the 512 BBi of the early 1980s isn't considered as collectable as other older Ferraris, but it was a powerful ride in its era. Schubert's shrine of a parking space could almost make an Aztek handsome, but the 512 BBi looks just right.

                              When Holger Schubert created his studio-garage space, he did what any self-respecting, Ferrari-loving, minimalist architect would do: he took his work-of-art BB 512i and built everything around it. As any showcased work of art deserves to be, Holger's car is in the spotlight and on the pedestal that is the studio garage, which was designed and built for the specific purpose of working and living alongside the Ferrari. Holger shares the details of his car and of his enviable space, which includes a 16-foot driveway bridge, a ramp to roll the car outside to start, and some of the best views a car can take in of the Pacific Ocean.
