Always having wealth would certainly affect their incentive to propogate. If I came into a wealthy family myself, I know I would never want a regular job.

It would be revealing also to see how wealth continues through the generations. Do wealthy heirs continue getting more so? And how about looking at the numbers of inherited wealth vs. "rags to riches" wealth.

That would be the hardest thing. I would want to have my wealth extend all the way to my children's families, but I wouldn't want them to be spoiled. It would all depend on how they're raised.

And it might be interesting to see how weath compares to city population of those locations. In the U.S. for many years the "wealthiest" families surprisingly were in rural states, mainly because of the large land holdings of farming families having accumulated and held on to vast acreage over generations.

I think you could cut the spoiled kids off at the pass if you could control yourself.  I don't think it would be easy if you were bouncing them around from place to place but if you settled into a spot where they had a regular schedule during the school year then you took trips to various homes around the world it won't be tough to keep them grounded.  I see kids whose parents can barely pay the mortgage but they are spoiled rotten and will probably grow up to be horrible adults so I don't think money or number of homes is the driving factor.

@Jamescon, it's all relative because the richness that $300 million means to us, is pocket change to the silicon valley's billionaires. Definition of rich varies greatly. $300 million is a nice comfortable number to me and my circle.

Jim that is what I expected but what's interesting about the trend is that we can see where the future of growth and wealth stands in the world by this list. We see clearly the tech wealthy the manufacturing wealthy etc. It would be so interesting to compare this over time we would see the evolution of how business is changing over time and shift in wealth as a result.

@Rbaz. I agree about moderate wealth being nice (emphasis on "wealth"). So, one of those $300 million lottery jackpots wouldn't be a bad start.

The main thing is with money, you have options and so variety being the spice of life, why limit to one or a few? That being said, with so many choices and decisions to make, I would be restless. It would be nice to experience wealth, but moderate wealth is best longterm.
