By that token, Obama's selfie is worth in the trillions...

-1. The market cap of the companies they run is over a trillion, they don't have a combined net worth of a trillion, the way Gates and Buffett have a net worth of $140b+. A Walton family selfie would top that, but it would be more people in the photo.

Nope, they're all CEO, President or Chairman at major companies:
Quote
CEO selfie L-R: John Bryant, CEO, Kellogg Company; Doug McMillon, CEO, Walmart blocks face of AG Lafley, COB, President and CEO, Procter & Gamble; Kees Kruythoff, President, North America, Unilever; Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO, Monsanto; Indra Nooyi, Chairperson and CEO, PepsiCo; Denise Morrison, President and CEO, Campbell; Roberto Marques, Chairman, Consumer NA, J&J.
Even if it was the richest Walton (Christy), that would only account for $36.7b. According to Forbes, there are 4 Waltons each worth over $30b, plus another 2 at $4b+.

ETA: In case you needed help decoding the caption, the blonde lady is the CEO of Campbell.

No, I think that Denise Morrison from Campbell is pictured in the second photo:

I've met the Senior VP of Campbell's and attended her son's wedding in NY (they're Jewish - friends with him and his wife)

But, the the lady in Pic #1? (First glance thought Marrissa Meyer, but not)

Lol, that's my bad. My caption with the names of all the CEOs was indeed for the 2nd picture, which is what I mistakenly thought you were referring to.

The woman in the 1st pic is Becky Quick, one of the anchors on CNBC's Squawk Box. The 3 behind her were on the show and at some point she took the selfie (463294165208420353[/tweet]]link). The 3rd guy is Charlie Munger, Buffett's #2 at Berkshire Hathaway. He's worth a paltry $1.1b, so the $143b number  from the previous post is almost entirely due to Gates and Buffett alone.

Also, just to comment again on the 2nd pic - CNBC themselves made the same mistake regarding net worth vs market cap of companies controlled (link). Pretty embarrassing for a financial news outlet.

I see; so therefore, she doesn't really add much to their total in the first pic.
What was the corrected number for the 2nd pic?

Not one of them is on Forbes billionaire list, and of the 4 that have their 2013 compensation listed by Forbes, they averaged around $8m. Suffice it to say that the 2nd pic doesn't come close to the first for total net worth,
