A Billion Here…A Billion There…

From Travis Listing of Iron River, WI.

I just heard your round of Comic Nonsense, and you made a mistake, or rather Ben did (But I don’t want to blame a kid, so I’ll blame you). When going over how much Scrooge McDuck was worth, you put him at 28.8 billion dollars, but you failed to find the updated version of it. In 2011, it had jumped up to 44.1 billion due to a spike in gold prices, yet a website has tried to calculate the amount of money in his vault, and has come up with 27 Trillion dollars.

In other words…answers may vary. Also, his accountant was NOT another duck. It was more of a dog.

Thank you, Travis!

    Actually in one of the Scrooge McDuck comics it was stated he was worth eight octillion dollars. A tornado hit his vault and scattered all his money and everyone became a millionaire so no one worked and everything shut down. It didn’t bother Scrooge at all because he planted a garden and charged millions for a potato, or carrot, or head of lettuce, etc. and got all his money back. A good lesson in economics for the kiddies.
