The Net Worth of Every US President

In the modern US political system, it costs billions of dollars to rise through the ranks and eventually make a run for president. While not necessary, it is definitely helpful to have some personal wealth to facilitate years of campaigning.

Many presidents have come into office with a great amount of personal or family wealth. Others, such as Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon, made their wealth after their terms from authoring books, interviews, or other public appearances.

Interestingly, adjusted for inflation, it appears that the two wealthiest presidents were George Washington and John F. Kennedy.

Some of the less wealthy include Harry Truman, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Chester Arthur, James Garfield, Ulysses Grant, Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, and Abraham Lincoln.
