How Much Worth is Our US Presidents?

Have you ever wondered how much George Washington was worth of? Or how much is President Obama worth of? I know it might sound funny and weird to you but the fact is there was a time when the real worth of these people was estimated by the National Survey of America. This post might help the young readers as it will motivate them to do something great in life.

It is of no help in the financial endeavor of people who have already settled their financial life well. In the articles by the National Survey of America, they presented the entire list of the presidents starting from George Washington to Obama with their net worth figures. Not only this they also mentioned how they actually built this net worth amount.

I could not resist myself in copy pasting the list. I really apologize guys. I know its your hard work but I want my readers to go through that list too :)

Obviously it was not possible for me to paste all the 43 president's name here but I at least mentioned the names of those whom I personally liked and who became the president for some reason or the other. And please after seeing the list do not start commenting on the figures. These figures are the approximate values which were calculated. This is how it was calculated.

please note that they have calculated the figures keep in mind the dollar value in 2010.

Famous Presidents & Their Net Worths:

John Adams (2nd)
Thomas Jefferson (3rd)
Abraham Lincoln (16th)
Ulysses Simpson Grant (18th)
Theodore Roosevelt (26th)
John Fitzgerald Kennedy (35th)
