Is there a correlation between intelligence and wealth when it comes to the ultra-wealthy? About 45% of billionaires were in the top one percent of cognitive ability, beating out Senators, Fortune 500 CEOs and especially those in the House of Representatives. But despite the braininess of the ultra-wealthy, other factors like work ethic, privilege, discipline and luck are important.
