The Los Angeles Business Journal published its annual list of the richest Angelenos, but the article is hidden behind a paywall so we common plebs can't see it. So here is a summary of L.A.'s power rankings of the absurdly rich...

Hollywood mogul (and one of the guys who is responsible for the unforunate Shrek) Jeffrey Katzenberg and Telecom Bro Gary Winnick (who is somehow super rich after driving his first company into the ground) are newcomers to the list.

Ryan Kavanaugh, the former media golden child and master of B.S. analytics at Relativity Media, had a rough year and got dinged from the top 10. Armenian-American tycoon Kirk Kerkorian died at the age of 98 and therefore dropped out as well.

2. Elon Musk. Tesla Bro. Lives in Bel Air. Net worth: $13.3 billion
