Adjusted for inflation, none of today's billionaires even make the top ten of richest people of all-time. So I'm not sure what you're referring to here?
10. Cornelius Vanderbilt - $185 billion
9. Henry Ford - $199 billion
3. Andrew Carnegie - $310 billion
2. John Rockefeller - $340 billion

I've only included US businessmen as your message was regarding America "inhibiting" billionaires. I'm not seeing that at all with this list.
Ben is sick ladies and gentlemen, thats right, Ben is sick.
