Thomas Jefferson – The President Who Needed Bankruptcy

 

Thomas Jefferson loved a lavish lifestyle. He was our 3rd President and author of the Declaration of Independence. He spent an enormous fortune constructing and furnishing his Monticello home. Jefferson served only the finest wines and a personal French chef prepared only the finest foods.

At the end of his life, Jefferson owed $100,000 in debt, about $1.6 million today! He was desperate for help. Without bankruptcy laws for relief, Jefferson attempted to create a “lottery” in which the winner would get title to monticelloJefferson’s lands (including Monticello). Ticket sales were disappointing and Jefferson died with his daughter Martha inheriting the debt.
