Is this guy RICHER than GATES, more POWERFUL than BUSH?

Much of the wealth of America's super rich is hidden behind endowments and private institutions through which they control money that they otherwise have no use for. Many men in the world listed as low-level billionaires are actually worth much, much more. At the height of John D. Rockefeller's wealth (around 1920), he had the equivalent of $1.5 trillion dollars in todays world. In addition to the various wealth-hiding schemes that America's super rich have continued to build upon through the Legislatures they buy, are the Swiss Bank Accounts, where old money matures for centuries.
