Barron Hilton leaves not much to Paris

Paris Hilton‘s grandfather, patriarch Barron Hilton is leaving 97% of his $2.3 billion personal fortune to charity, he announced.

Most of his fortune will go to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. His father Conrad N. Hilton founded the Hilton hotel chain in 1919.

So, what is not much at all? The 3% left from US$2.3 billion makes at least US$69 million inheritance for Paris!

(how much is one billion by the way? For most countries using the ‘short scale’ it’s 1,000,000,000 – one thousand million)
