Part 3: How do the Richest 400 People in America Got So Rich?…

Taking the Statistics in to account, the person ranking on the 400th position as the richest person of United States of America made $24 million in the year 1992.

Keeping the inflation rate equal, the person ranking on the 400th position as the richest person of United States of America made $87 million (or $138 million in actual) in the year 2007.

Obviously the individual in both the eras were not the same person. Richness keeps accelerating constantly and at the very summit of the race of it, we find a lot of hustle bustle. Only 25% of the lamented people of the 1990s got a chance to appear more than once.

The obvious source of this mystery is the capital gains, as documented by the IRS which had produced their results of 2009 from the 400 richest people revenue tax returns. The “Fortunate 400” had made their partial income from capital pay (a.k.a.: when investment is increasing the profit generated is capital gains) and the primitive wages credited to the remaining lesser 10%.

Between 1992 and 2007, the average pay of individuals had not even increased enough to be called double, while the average income of the ‘Fortunate 400’ shot up to $344 million ,having been increased by 650%. The tow of the average capital gains had accelerated by 1,200%. Hence we conclude that since pay is not the reason behind the constant richness of the people, it is actually their investment that is getting them richer.

Above is the statistical illustration about the relation between the average capital gains against average pay of the top 400 earners of America since 1992. The highest peaks are marked in the afore-drawn graph and the money in thousands is marked on the Y-axis.

Finally we discuss the last three crucial aspects.

1. As Tim Noah explained on our business page, a 2010 study studied the top 0.1 percent, who currently makes at least $1.7 million. In total, that is not even 14 times the number of the 400 top earners. In every ten of these people four were found to be executives, supervisors and managers of the non-professional organizations. Financiers made up 18 percent of the total. Law, health, and real estate officials credited to 7, 6 and 4 percent respectively.

2. The richest Americans have their finances being commanded and governed by their investments. The graphical representation of Matt O’Brien illustrated that the S&P is strongly engrossed by the 0.1 percent of the top 400 rich individuals.

3. Since the rich is getting richer by ever passing hour, George W. Bush’s regime has witnessed a steady fall in the capital gains tax rate from 28 % to 20 % to 15% in the final half of 1990s.

Making money and making it too large, is surely an art which is must to learn, these people are the inspirations for all of us. Life is all about progressing, Now Its your pace that decides on which rich rank you achieve.
