Chuck Feeney wears a $15 watch, travels coach class, yet he is richer than Donald Trump and Richard Murdoch. This guy does not own a house or a car.

He was born during the depression years to blue-collar, Irish-American parents who lived in New Jersy. As a boy Feeney earned money selling Christmas cards door-to-door, he shoveled snow from driveways and was a caddy for the rich at a Country club golf course. He loved making money.

Money pile

Over the past 25 years, Feeney has donated an astounding $4 billion dollars to charitable causes around the world.

Feeney made his fortune by co-founding Duty Free Shoppers (DFS), the world’s largest duty-free retail chain.
