Greater Washington has half of the nation’s richest counties

July 20, 2017

FOrbesFive of the 10 wealthiest counties in the U.S. are located in the D.C. metro area, according to Forbes’ 2017 rankings.

The Washington suburbs dominate the list because their median household incomes are some of the highest in the country, according to 2015 U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the most recent data available.

Virginia’s Loudoun County holds the title of the nation’s richest county with a median household income of $125,900. While nearly 10,000 residents commute to the District, according to Forbes, about 11,700 businesses employ 161,000 county residents, with Dulles International Airport, Loudoun County Public Schools and the Department of Homeland Security leading that charge.

The nearby city of Falls Church, Fairfax and Arlington counties in Virginia and Howard County in Maryland also lead the nation based on wealth.

    Listen up America the District of Columbia must be dismantled and made to join the nation and to abide by our laws and our Constitution. It is time for Americans to wake up and take all our country back.

    Wealth has become connected to the power structure in this country. If power and wealth were separated this would not be a finding. Greed causes this phenomenon to occur. As long as mankind works hard for power and money greed will show it’s ugly face. I don’t know of too many people that think the DC area is not a den of greed and power hungry people. Sad but true….
