Fathers & Finance

“A father and his money are soon parted” is one of the themes of this month’s special edition.  But the difficulty between dads and their dollars is nothing new to our site. 

Twice we have profiled media mogul Sumner Redstone, and his monetary feuds with his daughter Sheri Redstone.

We profile Richard Hilton, heir of the family fortune and father of
heiress Paris Hilton.

We profile Stanley Smith, the American Dad on Fox’s animated sit-com, who permitted his boss to have sexual relations with his 18-year-old daughter in order to get a promotion.

We profile Tommas
o Padoa-Schioppa, Italy’s Minister of Economy and Finance, and his campaign to encourage grown children to leave their parents’ nests.

We profile Royal Tannenbaum, who stole stocks and bonds from his teenage son.

But, of course, the father of all money-minded fathers is Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, the world’s richest fictional character and the proud dad of Little Orphan Annie.
