For quite long time, when the name Rothschild is being mentioned—whose name has become synonymous with elusive power— is apparently worth as much as the top 8 wealthiest billionaires in the world.
A week ago, Oxfam international published a shocking report revealing that the combined net worth of top 8 wealthiest men on the planet were worth more than the bottom half of the entire global population—about 3.6 billion people.
The Oxfam report failed to mention that there is an even wealthier—and more elusive—group of people who own many, many times more than a handful of multi-billionaires.
Even you sum up the 8 wealthiest men’s combined net worth totaling at over $400 billion, this worth is much smaller than the estimated worth of the Rothschild family.
According to Investopedia, the family’s net worth is estimated at over $2 trillion!
It clearly suggest that the family’s worth is nearly five times as much as the 8 billionaires listed by Oxfam.
Unlike other well-known billionaires, Rothschild family’s elusive wealth has a much more sinister history.
In their case, vast sums of wealth were accrued through hundreds of years of manipulative banking strategies that Mayer Amschel Rothschild pioneered in the 18th century.
Through the disciplined control of his five sons, Mayer was able to expand his financial empire, manipulating historic events like the French Revolution in order to profit from destabilization.
Today, the Rothschild dynasty has a claim over a massive breadth of wealth, significant portions of which are held in private companies/assets, extending their influence beyond the limitations of paper currency.
“…their holdings span a number of diverse industries, including financial services, real estate, mining, energy and even charitable work.There are a few Rothschild-owned financial institutions still operating in Europe, including N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd in the United Kingdom, and Edmond de Rothschild Group in Switzerland. The family also owns more than a dozen wineries in North America, Europe, South America, South Africa and Australia.” Investopedia said.
The impressive $2 trillion net worth of the Rothschild would make that nearly 5 times the collective wealth of Oxfam’s “top 8” list, and comprises 3/4 of the total global population.
