John D. Rockefeller: $336 – $660 Billion

John D. Rockefeller was the richest man in history, he is supposed to be the best business magnate ever, ruthless and merciless, he was a self-made millionaire who was able to create one of the biggest and most effective monopolies of all-time, a monopoly which according to the conspiracy theorists and Illuminati watchers still stands today.

I don’t believe in conspiracy theories, I prefer sticking to reality, and I know for fact that John Davison Rockefeller was poor when growing up, he was simply a very smart guy who played his cards well. Rockefeller founded the Standard Oil Company, which was known then as Standard Oil of Ohio in 1870, when he was just 31 years old, but even before that, in 1868 he became part of a firm called “Rockefeller, Andrews & Flagler” along with his brother William Rockefeller Jr., however, that company didn’t last long.

After creating the Standard Oil Company John D quickly became an Oil Titan and a business magnate, he was able to dominate and control most of the money in the world through hard work and sheer intimidation. However, despite being a ruthless businessman, Rockefeller was known to be a devout man, he loved God, and there’s no doubt that God loved him back as well.

How Much was/is John D. Rockefeller Worth?

In 1911 Rockefeller’s monopoly would finally come to an end, because in that year the Supreme Court of the United States found Standard Oil Company of New Jersey in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. The end result of this legal process was that Standard Oil was dismantled and broken up into 34 new companies within six months after the ruling. However, John D. kept his shares in all the 34 new companies, and made even more money during that time than in the rest of his entire life, his net worth peaked at $900,000,000, which would be somewhere around $336 Billion in today’s money according to BusinessInsider.com.

Forbes Magazine ranks John D. Rockefeller as the richest man in history on their All-Time Richest Americans list with a total fortune of $305.3 Billion approximately. But, according to History Channel’s tv series “The Men Who Built America” Rockefeller’s fortune would be worth somewhere around $660 Billion in today’s’ money.

    My great great great grand dad John D Rockeller and son William has never paid funding to long forgotten great great great grandson , lost in the years of greed of oil and rail roads that built this land of the brave and free. So why has my family been passed over to share the glory. Maybe because of being born in the back room with no name

  2. Thank you
