America has been around for a relatively short time compared to other countries. Despite its comparative newness, it has still managed to become the homeplace of some of the world’s most successful multinational corporations – and some of the richest celebrities in the world.
From Facebook to Hilton, Amazon to Ford, acting dynasties, and sports legend, America is practically synonymous with innovation. And because they are the best of the best, they have managed to make quite a profit. In America, it’s still common to pass down your wealth, whether it’s to your kids, your spouse, or beyond.
