You might have heard since your high school days that Rockefeller family was oneof the wealthiest families in America, they still are.
Rockefeller family family has an estimated fortune of $11 billion, placed in trust funds scattered here and there.
Well the whole story begins with John D. Rockefeller, the first American billionaire who became rich after founding Standard Oil in 1870, well quite a record there.
For many years now, they accumulated and reinvested their wealth so quickly that in 1913, family patriarch John D. Rockefeller, with $900m, was so rich that for every $100 of the US economy, 2 were controlled by him.
It does not even get worse, John D. Rockefeller’s net worth then applying inflation, his fortune today would be approximately $400 billion, making him the richest man in modern history.
Not some Pablo Escobar treat, this is real Oil business by John D. Rockefeller who bought and built historic buildings, including 30 Rockefeller Plaza and the most popular Chase towers.
Now the sad truth about Rockefeller Family’s wealth is that, anyone could literally make billions in a few years these days of course with some effort.
The entire Rockefeller fortune, built over 100 years does not even add up to a third of MacKenzie Bezos’ new fortune. Now, she is the fourth richest woman in the world.
Think about this, one computer geek creates Amazon and is literally worth billions now over a few years greater than Rockefeller Family, or, think about it this way, it took only a few months to settle a divorce with a billionaire and MacKenzie Bezos becomes rich just like that.
