Born on 12 June 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, the 41st President of the United States who served in the office from 1989 until ‘93, is George Herbert Walker Bush, who prior to his Presidency was the Vice-President to President Ronald Reagan from 1981 ‘til 1989. He also served as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and a member of the US House of Representatives for Texas.

So just how rich is George H.W. Bush, as of early 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Bush’s net worth is now over $25 million, accumulated from political positions, military service, business, authorship and speaking engagements, during his long career which began in 1942.

George H.W. Bush Net Worth $25 Million

George H.W. was educated at Phillips Academy, Massachusetts, but enlisted into the US Navy on his 18th birthday, becoming the youngest Navy pilot in World War 2, and flying over 50 combat missions in torpedo bombers, being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross among other medals.

After the war, Bush graduated from Yale University in 1948 with an economics degree, then moved to Texas, becoming involved in the oil industry, and opening his own business in 1953 when he co-created the Zapata Petroleum Corporation. The company successfully searched for oil in the Permian Basin, subsequently producing oil and gas, such that Bush became a millionaire by the time he was 40. He went on to serve as the president and then chairman of a Zapata subsidiary company entitled “Zapata Offshore Company”.

In the early ‘60s, Bush began to take a serious interest in politics, and consequently joined the Republican Party, soon being elected local chairman, and was then elected to the House of Representatives in 1966, serving two terms before losing in a bid for the Senate. However, President Nixon appointed him US Ambassador to the United Nations in 1971, which he held for two years before becoming chairman of the Republican party, but then President Ford named him unofficial ambassador to China in 1974, and Director of the CIA in 1976 for two years.

From 1977 to 1981, Bush mixed academia at Rice University with business in the First International Bank in Houston, and being Director of the Council on Foreign Relations, before losing the presidential primaries to Ronald Reagan, but then becoming his Vice-President, from 1981 to ’89 and serving with distinction, which eventually saw him succeed as the 41st President of the United States.

Despite a strong performance in foreign affairs, economic problems saw Bush defeated by Bill Clinton in 1993, since when he has written about his career, and been in demand as a public speaker. He has also taken a keen interest in The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum established at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

In his less-than-private personal life, Bush married Barbara Pierce in 1945, and they have six children, several of whom merit their own article, including George W., the 43rd President!

Wilbur Louis Ross Jr. was born on the 28th November 1937, in Weehawken, New Jersey USA, and is an investor, banker and quasi-politician as he is the current US Secretary of Commerce. He is best known for rebuilding bankrupted companies in industries such as steel, telecommunications and textiles among others.

Have you ever wondered how rich Wilbur Ross is, as of early 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Ross’ net worth is as high as $2.5 billion, an amount earned largely through his successful career in business and as a public servant.

Wilbur Ross Net Worth $2.5 Billion

Wilbur is the son of Wilbur Louis Ross, Sr., who was a lawyer and then became a judge, and his wife, Agnes, nee O’Neill, who worked as a school teacher. He went to Catholic college preparatory Xavier High School, where he competed in track and was captain of the rifle team. After matriculation he enrolled at Yale University, graduating with a BA egree in business, and furthered his studies at Harvard Business School obtaining a Master’s degree in business administration.

Wilbur’s career began in the late ‘70s, when he began work for N M Rothschild & Sons in New York City. For the next 24 years he held several positions at the company, eventually running the bankruptcy-restructuring practice.

In the ‘90s he established a $200 million fund at Rothschild to invest in distressed assets, and so focused on investing, leaving advising behind him. A couple of years later he bought out the fund and gave it the name WL Ross & Co. His first investments were several bankrupt steel companies, so founding the International Steel Group which he sold just three years later for $4.5 billion, a very significant boost to his net worth.

His next move was the International Textile Group, which he formed in 2004 after combining defunct Burlington Industries and Cone Mills, and soon added several other companies, including Safety Components International. In 2016 sold the entire ITG to Platinum Equity; for an undisclosed amount.

Ross also ventured into the automotive industry, when he founded Automotive Components Group in 2006 and bought Lear Corporation and also several divisions of Collins & Aikman.
His ambitions didn’t stop with automobiles – he also started the International Coal Group, which he later sold for $3.4 billion, increasing further his net worth.

When it comes to his quasi-political career, Wilbur was raised as a Democrat and under US President Bill Clinton he was a board member of the US-Russia Investment Fund. However, he changed his beliefs and most recently supported Donald Trump as the new president. On the 27th February 2017, he was confirmed by the US Senate as the new Secretary of Commerce with a vote result of 72-27.

Thanks to his successful career Wilbur has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Order of Industrial Service Merit medal, given by the Kim Dae Jung, President of South Korea, due to his successful assistance during 1998 Korean financial crisis, then the Order of the Rising Sun medal given to him by Japanese Ambassador Sumio Kusaka, for strengthening the bond between Japan and the USA.

He has also received the American Irish Historical Society Gold Medal for his efforts to save the struggling Bank of Ireland, among many other awards.

Regarding his personal life, Wilbur has been married to Hilary Geary since 2004. Previously, he was married to Betsy McCaughey from 1995 until 2000, and Judith Nodine from 1961 to 1995, with whom he has two daughters.

Meles Zenawi Asres was born on 9 May 1955, in Adwa, Ethiopia, and was a politician, best known to have served as Prime Minister of Ethiopia from 1995 to 2012. He was also the chairman of the Tigrayan Peoples’ Liberation Front (TPLF) and leader of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF). All of his efforts helped put his net worth to where it was prior to his passing in 2012.

How rich was Meles Zenawi? As of early-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that was at $3 billion, mostly garnered through his career in politics. He also served as the President of the Transitional Government of Ethiopia, and all of these achievements ensured the position of his wealth.

Meles Zenawi Net Worth $3 billion

Zenawi attended General Wingate High School on a full scholarship, matriculating in 1972. He then attended Addis Ababa University for two years, but dropped out to become part of the Tigrayan National Organization (TNO). This would later become the TPLF and he also established the Marxist-Leninist League of Tigray. He became a known name in the struggle against the Derg regime, and then ascended to power after the end of the Ethiopian Civil War in 1991. He became the president of the transitional government of Ethiopia, which had mixed support from other countries. The peace was created after intervention from the United States to facilitate peace talks. Despite the general acceptance of the change of leadership at the time, there was still a lot of opposition from different parts of Ethiopia.

Since then, Zenawi worked on various policies, including gaining a larger share of the Nile River to have more hydropower prospects. He also helped with trying to stabilise the situation in Somalia, and granting Eritrea its independence. However this would later lead to the 1998 Eritrean-Ethiopian War, which would only be resolved through a peace treaty after Ethiopia’s counter-attack, when Meles decided to sign a United Nations Peace Treaty. Later on, a threat to invade Ethiopia was noticed and it led to him declaring war on the Islamic Courts Union (ICU). The war was supported by the African Union and the United States and led to the successful driving out of the ICU. The ICU then splintered into numerous small factions which tried to regain control of areas, but failed to do so. Zenawi then focused on climate change policies.

Meles has also been criticized for numerous issues and scandals during his time as leader. It was known that the Oromo people were heavily discriminated during his regime, and there was also conflict against the Anuaks, which led to many being killed in 2003. It was also reported the he had helped in jailing political leaders, journalists, and activists to help shape the country’s politics in his way. In 2006, it was reported that police massacred 193 protesters however the report was then opposed stating that it was highly sensationalized. Another report was given stating that six policemen were killed and around 763 people were injured during the conflict which was an anti-government protest. This led to leaders of the main opposition party being imprisoned. Some of the journalists and publishers have since been acquitted, but other leaders remain imprisoned. They were only released after a long process.

For his personal life, it is known that Zenawi was married to Azeb Mesfin who is a Member of Parliament; he also had three children. In 2012, rumors started spreading about his health, and in August it was reported that he had passed away after contracting an infection. Many attended his funeral, and thousands of mourners greeted the return of his body to Ethiopia from Belgium, where he had been undergoing treatment.

The 44th and first African-American President of the United States, Barack Obama was born into a mixed-race family on 4 August 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, and became known all over the world when he entered The White House in January 2009, and subsequently served two terms before resuming relatively private life on 20 January 2017.

So just how rich is Barack Obama, as of early 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Obama has a net worth of over $13 million, earned partly during his presidency, when his salary was $400,000 per year, but also from his previous tenure as a US senator for Illinois from 2005 to 2008, and his service in the Illinois state senate from 1997 until 2004. Additionally, as president he also had access to a $100,000 travel account, $20,000 entertainment budget, and $150,000 expense account. Barack Obama was also known as a lawyer, writer and actor before his election to public office, which all contributed to his bank account.

Barack Obama Net Worth $12.8 Million

Barack’s parents divorced when he was 3 years old, and the next year his mother married a man from Indonesia, so Obama spent part of his childhood near the Indonesian capital city of Jakarta. At the age of 10 he arrived back in his homeland, and was raised by his maternal grandparents. Obama subsequently graduated from Columbia University in 1983 with a degree in political science and industrial relations.  He later earned his Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School in 1993, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review, between times having worked in various community projects in Chicago.

Obama then worked as an attorney for the civil rights movement in Chicago, until elected to the Illinois Senate in 1997, plus the main component of his net worth at that time Obama earned from writing two books – “Dreams of my Father” in 1995, and “The Audacity of Hope” in 2006, which sold much better after he won election to the US Senate. His political life in Illinois was  particularly noted for reforming health care laws, ethics and tax credits for low-income workers, welfare reform, and subsidies for childcare. These interests characterised his period in the US senate too, and continued into his presidency, in the face of a hostile congress.

If we want to answer the question about how rich Barack Obama is, we can take a look at some of his annual income. In 2004 Obama earned 112,000 dollars as the Senator for Illinois and a lecturer at the Chicago Law School. In 2005 it was 1.6 million dollars, largely from book sales. By 2007 his income was 4.2 million dollars, again largely from book sales, and in 2009 he earned 5.5 million dollars from salary and book sales.

In his personal life, Barack and Michelle married in 1992 and have two daughters; their permanent residence is now their Chicago home.

Even though Sean Hannity is best known as a radio show host, he has also been appearing in many television projects. Hannity debuted on Fox Channel with a live television show called “Hannity & Colmes”, which featured many political debates and various celebrity guests. The show premiered on television screens in 1996 and aired until 2009 when it was replaced by “Hannity’s America”. The latter show only aired for two years, but in 2009 was yet again replaced, by “Hannity”, a political program which followed the idea of its predecessor “Hannity & Colmes”.

Over the years, featured guests have included as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson and others, and it managed to maintain a high average of listeners. Currently, Hannity’s radio show is considered to be the second most listened-to radio show in the US after “The Rush Limbaugh Show”, ensuring his net worth rises.

In addition to having his own radio show, Sean Hannity has proven to be a rather commercially successful writer, debuting in 2002 with the release of “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism”, focused on American politics, which became Hannity’s best-selling book and was even featured on The New York Times best-sellers list. Hannity followed this with two more books on the same subject, both of which topped the best-sellers list.
