Escobar. Peak net worth of about $3 billion, with the Medellín cartel controlling 80% of the global cocaine market. Chapo's net worth is/was around $1 billion.

Plus, Sinaloa has basically been run by MZ for a while now.

Yeah. Escobar pretty much held the Colombian government hostage in the 80s. Launched a full scale war against them and forced them to cave into his demands.

Both dudes are losers.

Chapo and Escobar had billions of dollars, and one is dead and the other one is going to get ass fucked in prison until he kills himself.

Who is the winner?

Prolly Escobar, dude once offered to pay off Columbia's $10 billion debt. But we don't even know the full extent of Chapo's empire tho.

Default Re: El Chapo or Pablo Escobar

chapo has made more money


if youve never been to mexico, you have no idea how easy it is to buy off police. $20 gets you off a speeding ticket, imagine how much a billionaire can get away with? the whole country is corrupt as fck, look at their underdeveloped roads and highways, wonder why they have potholes even after 5-10 years of the government having granted money to rebuild them? the money gets diverted into pockets other than contractors. a lot of politicians are scumbags who will take money and look the other way.


you have to understand that cops in mexico dont even make the equivalent of what a mcdoanlds employee on minimuim wage earns a month here in the u.s earning a couple hundred dollars a month is a good job in mexico, ~400 A MONTH! now imagine being bribed a couple thousand, are you going to refuse?

I'd rather be Paul Allen. Have enough money to make these two guys look like pitiful beggars, own 2 sports teams (one of whom just won you a championship), helped to found a massive multibillion dollar business, and be healthy with a long life expectancy.

That is a winner right there.

Well Pablo Escobar was actually a pretty sick person and donated a lot of money to development of roads, hospitals, schools, etc. A lot of negative views of him are from extremely biased pro-War-on-Drugs sources. He was well loved and a hero in Colombia, so I take back him being called a loser.

Paul Allen still >>>>> El Chapo or Escobar though. Yeah, no one would watch his show... but he'll be the one drinking from a $75,000 bottle of scotch this year while the drug lords are in chains or six feet under.

Paul Allen could literally buy EVERYTHING El Chapo owns, all the houses, cars, guns, drugs, jewelry, etc. He could pile it up together, set it all on fire, and then rent a military jet to drop firebombs on it.

After he did this he would still be well over 10x richer than El Chapo Guzman and would still have over 90% of his wealth remaining.
