During the late Roman Republic Marcus Crassus was a Roman billionaire with all sorts of real estate investments everywhere in the ancient city with one million people. All sorts of anecdotes abound such as the one that he would send agents around town to set fire to apartment buildings only to bargain with the owners to sell them the property as it burned. When the agreement was reached, he would put out the fire with Republican Rome’s only fire department.
He had political aspirations of his own, but they could go only so far in those days. Rome was an aristocratic society. Office holders had to be the scions of certain noble families. So Crassus used his money to back the most successful Roman politician and conqueror who ever lived, Julius Caesar.
Cut to 2016 America. Donald Trump is a real estate billionaire from New York City, the Rome of modern day America. In this democratic society he can run for office himself and has won the current election. For the first time Marcus Crassus gets his chance to rule.
