The Wealthiest Americans Ever

Bill Gates

Yeah, I am damn rich, what are you gonna do about it?

Click HERE To see this ubercool flash site done by the New York Times. It shows a glider graphic chart of 30 of the all-time wealthiest americans ever, weighing for inflations and changes in cost of livings over time.

Since most of the world’s wealthiest people are Americans, the chart can also be regarded as one which shows the wealthiest people ever in the world.

Interestingly, most of the rich bastards on the list made their wealth by providing for essential commodities such as coal, oil and railway tracks. My conclusion from this finding is that it will be pretty hard for us to get as wealthy as these chaps as most parts of the world are already industralised and such essential comodities are usually already provided for by the government or established large corporations.

There are only two living persons in the list – Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

Gates got rich via the new media and Buffet via investments. These two areas may be where we need to go to earn our billions now.
