Money, as they say, makes the world go round. And in the case of Andrew Carnegie, that saying couldn’t be more true. If there is one name that is synonymous with philanthropy, industry and vast riches, that name would belong to Mr. Carnegie,
Born in Scotland in 1835, Andrew Carnegie’s heritage was nothing particularly special. He had been born to a family of weavers, who were at the time living in a small home. Living in a world after the industrial revolution was tough for the Carnegies, who struggled to survive due to the constantly changing economic climate of Scotland. By the time he was 13, it was clear to the Carnegie family that Scotland didn’t hold economic opportunity for them any longer and so they made the decision to move to the American state of Pennsylvania, where Andrew would find his very first job, working as a bobbin boy.
