Haha that's funny, although stereotypical and wrong, this originated with Andrew Carnigie and Scrooge McDuck was based on him, but if you know about Carnegie then you know this is a false representation, Carnegie has been quoted as the second richest man in history behind Rockefeller.
The thing is Carnegie believed it wrong to hoard all his cash so in his later years he distributed all of it all over the world to the building of library's and art galleries and the likes, so you can imagine how his money went to educating this world, Legend.
Yes - apparently the Scots invented "wire" - two of them arguing over a sixpence.
