How rich was Stalin? What was his net worth?
As the leader of the Soviet state, it is exceedingly difficult to measure the net worth of Joseph Stalin. In measuring this quantity, one has two options; either measure the value of his own possessions or those of the entire Soviet State.
As Stalin lived within a state owned building, used state funds for most of his events and trips, and usually either discarded or gave away his state pay, Stalin had a relatively meager personal net worth, with his only known possessions being his clothes, books, memorabilia, and pipe.
If one was to measure his net worth as that of the state, however, he would be worth trillions due to the vast swathes of resources, goods, and possessions within the country.
In reality, it is impossible to actually measure the net worth of Stalin.
