According to a new report from Wealthinsight, there will be more than 9.5 million millionaires in this country by 2017 showing a growth rate of 68%. The amount they possess will increase by 83% to just under 40 Trillion dollars.  In 2012, total millionaires in the US was over 5.2 million possessing 21.6 Trillion dollars.
