Issac Davis — Rothschild Family Wealth Is Five Times That Of World’s Top 8 Billionaires Combined

Listed below are the 8 billionaires along with their estimated wealth, which combined equals $426.2 billion.
  1. Bill Gates – $75 b
  2. Amancio Ortega – $67 b
  3. Warren Buffett – $60.8 b
  4. Carlos Slim Helu – $50 b
  5. Jeff Bezos – $45.2 b
  6. Mark Zuckerberg – $44.6 b
  7. Larry Ellison – $43.6 b
  8. Michael Bllomberg – $40 b

At $2 trillion plus [estimated], the family’s reported wealth is closing in on five times as much as the combined wealth of the world’s top 8 individual billionaires, meaning that the Rothschild family alone controls more wealth than perhaps three-fourths or more of the world’s total population.…
But no Rothschild appears on the richest list because the family's wealth is dispersed among the members. Moreover, the actual figures are not public since the bulk of the wealth is privately held and doesn't have to be disclosed publicly.

There's around 400 to 500 Rothchild family members. If we divvy up "the loot," that's around 4 to 5 billion per. Not alot by Buffet standards but still more than Trump's alleged wealth ;)

Wish someone would send this article to Trump. You know, just to bug him a bit. Who knows, he might just order an investigation into the wealth of all those billionaires on the list ;)

I'm suspicious. Little indication in that article as to exactly how they arrived at their result.
