Seems like while the world’s “falling apart” in the midst of pandemic, hurricanes, and protests across the world – rich people are getting richer.
Reportedly, American billionaire class has increased by 19% since COVID-19 began (that’s approximately $565 billion since March) and $79 billion just the last week.
Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos’ wealth increased by 48% in the two months, that’s $35 billion more in 2020 with total net worth of $147 billion. Amazon apparently makes $10,000 per second. That is $600,000 per minute and $36 million per hour.
However, Bezos is not the only one with huge success. Tesla’s Elon Musk had added to his wealth $15 billion more. This sums up to 55% rise of his wealth.
Last but not least is also Facebook’s chief Mark Zuckerberg who’s net worth increased by 46% more than last, putting his net worth to $80 billion.
