Jakob the Rich's wealth was so substantial it was incomprehensible. If he was alive today, his wealth would have so many noughts, the majority of people wouldn't be able to tell you what the actual number was. 

His business strategy was key to becoming the richest man in history. He understood his business so well that what an ordinary man would consider a risk, he considered an opportunity. 

"His quest to better understand the health of his business lead to a better business."
