Brother can you spare a dime?

We made a list, and we checked it twice. Gotta find out, who's both rich and nice!

A lot of lists going around about the richest Americans but this is a list I compiled about the richest of Americans of all time that are:
1. Rich
2. Rich adjusted for today's dollar
3. Rich adjusted to the % of GDP they owned for their time
4. Known by the Public

John D Rockefeller, Oil, 192 Billion






Cornelius Vanderbilt, Railroads, 143 Billion





John Jacob Astor Family, Real Estate, 116 Billion





Bill Gates, Microsoft, 82 billion







Andrew Mellon, Banker - Industrialist, 78 Billion






Sam Walton Family, Retailer, 54 Billion






Henry Ford Family, Industrialist, 53 Billion






Andrew Carnegie, Industrialist - U.S. Steel, 48 Billion






J.P. Morgan, Banker - Chase Manhattan, 46 Billion





Warren Buffet, Investments, 45 Billion






There were some others such as Stephen Girard - 83 Billion, A. Steart - 70 Bilion, Fred Weyerhaeusen - 68 Billion, Jay Gould - 67 Billion, Stephen Van Resselaer - 64 Billion and Marshall Field -61 Billion but not too many people have ever heard of them - and nobody gives a shit!
