President Obama II was born into a mixed-race family in 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii. But his parents divorced when Barack was 3 years old, and the next year his mother married a man from Indonesia, so Obama spent his childhood near the Indonesian capital city Jakarta. At the age of 10 he arrived back in his homeland and was raised by his maternal grandparents. Obama attended Columbia university and later Harvard Law School, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduation B. Obama worked as attorney of the civil rights movement in Chicago for 12 years and that’s how he started to raise his net worth.

But the main component of his net worth Barack Obama earned thanks to the books he has written. He is an author of two books – the first one was “The Audacity of Hope” and the second is entitled “Dreams of my Father” which sold much faster and better after his speech to the Democratic National Convention. In 2005 Barack Obama’s income was already $1.7 million. Nowadays Barack Obama continues to increase his net worth from his books – he receives $3.75 for a hardcover copy sold and also $1.12 for every book which is sold in paperback.

In 2004 Obama earned $112,000 as the Senator for Illinois and a lecturer at the Chicago Law School.

Obama earned 4.2 million ($3.2 million were earned from “The Audacity of Hope” and $815,000 from “Dreams From My Father”). Obama’s net worth increased extremely quickly in 2009, when he earned $5.5 million. In 2010 his salary was again $1.7 million.

The amount of Barack Obama’s net worth also allows him to drive two cars – 2005 Chrysler 300C and President’s Cadillac limousine which is nicknamed as “The Beast”. Although this car isn’t priced, it’s worth is considered to be about $450,000. Despite the fact that today Obama’s annual earnings are not as huge as they were before, there is no doubt that B.
