According to a new study some of the richest people in the world are also in fact some of the smartest.

That’s right. Billionaires really are smarter than us.  But it doesn't mean they always have good hair, eh.....thinking Donald Trump here....but when you've got a billion bucks you can wear your hair however you like, right!?!?!?

Researchers found that within the top one percent of smart people, those with the highest degree of intelligence usually earn the most money.

Apparently, 45 percent of the world’s billionaires are part of the top one percent of smart people.

Also, 39 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs, 41 percent of Senators and 40 percent of federal judges fall into that top one percent.

So while being smart doesn’t automatically mean you’re going to be rich, it definitely increases your chances of doing so. (BusinessInsider.com)
