Accounting for the Rothschild Wealth and Influence

Morton (1962) noted that the Rothschild wealth was estimated at over $6 billion US in 1850. Not a significant amount in today's dollars; however, consider the potential future value compounded over 147 years!

Taking $6 billion (and assuming no erosion of the wealth base) and compounding that figure at various returns on investment (a conservative range of 4% to 8%) would suggest the following net worth of the Rothschild family enterprise:

$1.9 trillion US (@ 4%)
$7.8 trillion US (@ 5%)
$31.5 trillion US (@ 6%)
$125,189.1 trillion US (@ 7%)
$491,409.0 trillion US (@ 8%)

To give these figures some perspective consider these benchmarks:

A little of $300 billion US buys every ounce of gold in every central bank in the world (see John Kutyn's estimate (http://www.gold-eagle.com/gold_digest/kutyn111597.html).
U.S. M3 money supply August 1997 was $5.2 trillion
U.S. debt is currently $5.4 trillion.
U.S. GDP (1997; 2nd Q.) is $8.03 trillion.
George Soros' empire is worth an estimated $20 billion.More (http://www.mega.nu:8080/ampp/rothschild2.html)

$6 billion in 1850? Maybe Morton meant it was the equivalent of $6 billion in 1962. In 1850 $6 million would have been one of the greatest fortunes in the world. But the Rothschilds have been one of the wealthiest families in the world for nearly 200 years thanks to their predatory banking practices.

This is the type of scary s#!t that can keep you up at night…far worse than any horror movie. I must say though that I too am not quite sure about that 1800’s number.
