The wealthiest families in the world are not often seen on televisions as what most people think. They are not the Trumps, the Kardashians or any other family of celebrities, although they become rich with their inheritance and they get most of the money from their ancestors. In the family business, the whole or some members of the family are involved in the business that they either inherited from their ancestors or built on their own. The names that often appear on the top include the Koch, Mars, and Walton family. The richest families are dynasties worth billions of dollars and most of them keep their cash close to home by employing grandchildren, children, and other immediate members of the family in their businesses. They share business and net worth among them and also promote their businesses. These powerful families are linked to the ongoing crisis of wealth inequality across the globe that is out of control and is no accident, but many are still unaware of their existence. The members of the wealthiest families belong to different professions and have different sources of income. Some of them may only have a single source while others have multiple sources and different businesses where they also invest and make revenues. They are involved in businesses, such as food production, manufacturing, insurance, health and pharmaceuticals, investment and finance, and retail, to name a few categories. The world's richest families are an inspiration to those who are also concerned with family business. Read on to find out who’s on this rich list.
