According to a Comparisun report, the world's richest net worth has grown by 34% on average over the last five years.
This could potentially see him become the world’s first trillionaire as early as 2026. At 2026, he’ll be aged 62.The research also predicts that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg could become the youngest trillionaire in the world in 2036, when he will be 51.
Twitter users were angry as the Covid-19 pandemic was thrust in the spotlight as well as the alleged mistreatment of Amazon workers.
Jeff Bezos on course to become a trillionaire in a time where millions of people have lost their jobs & are living in poverty; are hungry, sick & are dying...? Like, Amazon workers themselves are under compensated, overworked & abused-— carpe vinum (@small_n_bitter) May 14, 2020
Jeff Bezos to become world’s first trillionaire from the profits he made on the back of a pandemic while we are about to enter a global recession and Amazon workers lose hazard payments? This is why capitalism is wrong, such wealth should never be in the hands of an individual— Martin O'Neill (@DrNostromo) May 14, 2020
