I saw this very interesting map on billionaires by country and origin of their wealth, i.e. inherited, company founders, executives, financial sector.

In continental Europe more of it is inherited than in the U.S., or, interestingly, in Great Britain. Those countries which have stock exchanges have a higher percentage of their billionaires making their money in the financial sector. Some countries have a lot of billionaires having made their money through founding a company, like Italy, for example. Then there's Russia, with the billionaires making their money from having grabbed natural resources with the fall of the Soviet Union, or through political connections.
