  2. He's still a fucking long ways away. Rockefeller's wealth peaked at 300 billion. And that was the Gilded age. It was easier to amass ridiculous fortunes on the backs of near slave labour.

    I bet he won't surpass him.

    Mark Zuckerberg however I could see that happening. He's young enough.

  6. Maybe but I was thinking more like he pulls a bill gates and cashes out eventually and becomes an investor in the broad economy. Compound his wealth by a few decades and it will grow to the hundreds of billions assuming he doesn't give it away.
  7. Uh huh right go learn something about labor conditions 100+ years ago. There were no unions, no minimum wage, no overtime, 2 week vacation... LOL. There was extreme profiteering at the expense of the poor working class who had no rights or voice. Why do you think they call them the robber barrons.
