How Much Money Does Mr. Burns Have? Why It is More Than $1,000,000,000.00
If you’ve guessed it, I’ve actually been watching the Simpsons quite a bit lately, as its been giving me a light hearted TV show to watch while I’m quarantined in the house on weekends. I’ve become fascinated with the Simpsons character Mr. Burns, in that he is pretty much everything I’ve aspired to be up until this point. Mr. Burns has a net worth in the range of likely $1,200,000,000.00, and he has essentially unlimited power of Springfield within the show, as he owns all of the cable broadcasting stations, and he regularly exerts his power to the fullest extent over the humble, family-oriented citizens of Springfield. And now let’s look at the question of “how much money does Mr. Burns have?” Enjoy this blog post on Mr. Burns, depending on how the character posts work, there may be many more to come!

How Much Money Does Mr. Burns Have? Breaking Down his Power Plant in SpringField
In the above video it looks like Mr. Burns has something in the range of $1,200,000,000.00, and that in other videos I’ve seen him having as little as just $700,000,000.00. Either way, Mr. Burns is a powerful billionaire with a ridiculous amount of wealth, as the “ridiculous” amount of wealth figures typically start at around the $75,000,000 range to the $200,000,000 range, and just get more and more ridiculous from there. When you think about how much money someone with say $2,000,000.00 has compared to someone with $12,000, and then you think about $175,000,000, and then from there you think about what Jeff Bezos’s $200,000,000,000.00 looks like, you start to see just how insane the wealth gap is in this country, and it is getting worse by the day.
But onto the power plant that Mr. Burns owns in Springfield, I think it is fair to say that Mr. Burns likely earns in the range of about $30,000,000 per year in salary from that power plant, and that he has managed to stack up well over $1,000,000,000.00 from his troubles in doing so. As far as his assets go, here’s what I was able to come up with:
$300,000,000.00 Power Plant
$25,000,000 in Stock Investments (remember he lost the majority of his money betting on old companies in the stock market)
$20,000,000.00 from his other companies
$400,000,000 from random winnings.
This takes his fortune to right around $1,200,000,000.00, which I think is very accurate.
