The 10 Richest World Leaders

The 10 Richest World Leaders

Public service is a virtue long suited only for those who want the job. In most places, government workers and leaders don’t make a lot of money. The government must show the people that they’re being responsible with their tax dollars. The people must believe that their government isn’t getting rich off their backs. It’s basically a foundation of American politics.

Of course, in other countries, they don’t give a rip. For the men on this list, they have become experts in not only having financial power, but political power as well. It’s not like in America where how much the President makes is determined by the people. In other countries, these leaders have so much money that their combined wealth makes Bill Gates look like a welfare recipient.

Wouldn’t it be funny if these guys were on Shark Tank? When some entrepreneur says that they made $1 million in sales last year, NBC would have to stop production because all of them would die of laughter. Once they composed themselves at the idea of making $1 million, they would probably go to the restroom to dry their eyes with $20 bills.

Well, as the old saying goes: it’s good to be king.

10. Albert II, Prince of Monaco – $1 Billion

Monaco is the sorta-French country out in Europe, famous for its casinos and high-class living. One of their events, the Monaco Grand Prix, is one of the most highly respected auto racing tournaments in the history of the world and Albert II is in charge of it all.  If only he could keep his junk in his pants.  That must be the American in him.

It’s no joke. The world expects its world leaders to be cautions, but Albert joined the “whatever!” club years ago. He not only is confirmed to have fathered one child with an African flight attendant, but has another one that grew up just outside of L.A. Albert takes the term “balling” to a whole new level.

One of the oldest e-mail scams comes from people pretending to be a wealthy African monarch.  Usually, the scam is from a “Prince” in some African country and he is lurking on unsuspecting goofballs to steal their money.  The scam is usually pretty simple, too. It involves somehow getting the receiver to send in their bank account information so the “Prince” can park his money in it.  Like clockwork, these spammers sucker people into giving up that sensitive information and steal all their money.

Now, there’s only one exception; King Mohammed of Morocco. He’s worth $2.5 billion.   What to do if he emails and asks for a bank account number? Give it to him!

Ladies! Who is that handsome guy who lets tax evaders from all over the world put their money at his bank? That’s right, it’s Hans Adam II. Hans admits that his fortune hasn’t come from actually making anything other than lax banking regulations. But don’t worry, their shady ways of doing business have allowed people to skip out on their financial responsibilities for years. He’s so creative!

Hans says he likes long walks on the beach, dinner by candlelight, and figuring out how the capital gains tax in the United States can be circumvented with his country’s banking rules. Hans admits that he has trouble actually trying to run a country while scamming others at the same time. But alas, he will always make time to find ways to screw over everyone that isn’t him. What a charmer.
