Pablo Escobar

"The Justice Department yesterday charged fugitive Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and his alleged top assassin with plotting to blow up an Avianca Airlines flight that exploded over Colombia in November 1989, killing 110 people, including two U.S. citizens."

10 facts reveal the absurdity of Pablo Escobar's wealth

"The "King of Cocaine" was the son of a poor Colombian farmer, but by the time he was 35, he was one of the world's wealthiest men. . . . estimates run as high as $30 billion."

"1. In the mid-1980s, Escobar's cartel brought in an estimated $420 million a week, which totals almost $22 billion a year."
Source: The Daily Beast

"2. Escobar made the Forbes' list of international billionaires for seven years straight, from 1987 until 1993. In 1989, he was listed as the seventh-richest man in the world."
Source: Forbes

"3. By the end of the 1980s, he supplied 80% of the world's cocaine."

"4. He smuggled about 15 tons of cocaine into the US every day."

"5. In other words, of the Americans doing cocaine, four out of five were snorting lines supplied by "El Patron." "
Source: GQ

"6. The "King of Cocaine" factored in a $2.1 billion loss in profits each month, . . . . . . .he couldn't launder his cash quickly enough. He resorted to stashing piles of cash in Colombian farming fields, dilapidated warehouses, and in the walls of cartel members' homes, according to . . . the cartel's chief accountant and the kingpin's brother, in his book "The Accountant's Story: Inside the Violent World of the Medellín Cartel." . . . each year we would write off 10% of the money because the rats would eat it in storage or it would be damaged by water or lost," Escobar wrote. That would be about $2.1 billion, . . . .Escobar simply had more money than he knew to do with, so haphazardly losing money to rodents and mold wasn't an issue."

"7. According to Roberto Escobar, the Medellín cartel spent an estimated $2,500 a month on rubber bands needed to hold stacks of bills together."

"8. Once he started a fire with $2 million because his daughter was cold. In a 2009 interview with Don Juan magazine, Escobar's son, . . . described what life was like on the run with the King of Cocaine. . . . the family was living in a hideout in the Medellín mountainside when Escobar's daughter, Manuela, became hypothermic. Escobar decided to torch $2 million in crisp banknotes to keep her warm."

"9. He was nicknamed "Robin Hood" after handing out cash to the poor, building housing for the homeless, constructing 70 community soccer fields, and building a zoo."
Sources: Forbes, A History of Modern Latin America: 1800 to the Present

"10. In 1991, Escobar was incarcerated in his self-designed prison he named "La Catedral." In the terms of his agreement with the Colombian government, Escobar was allowed to select who was imprisoned with him and who worked in the prison. He could also continue to run his cartel business and receive visitors. . . . Also, the Colombian authorities were not allowed within 3 miles of his prison."

"In the late 1980s he reportedly offered to pay off his country’s debt of $10 billion if he would be exempt from any extradition treaty. Despite his best efforts, however, even Escobar couldn’t spend all that money, and much of it was stored in warehouses and fields. According to his brother, about 10%, or $2.1 billion, was written off annually—eaten by rats or destroyed by the elements. In some cases, it was simply lost."

Re: Pablo Escobar

I’m not sure the Virgo rising (is this speculative?) would actually fit his business skill, desire to help the public and interest in political power.
