Worlds’ richest 1 trillion richer
The 500 richest people on earth this year have gained 1 trillion extra dollars, according to a calculation by Bloomberg news agency. The growth, which is four times the size of last year, was mainly due to rising share prices.
The boss of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, saw his wealth increase most: with 34.2 billion dollars to almost 100 billion in total. Bezos took over in October as the richest man in the world from Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
Gates, now the number two, … received around 9 billion dollars. His assets are estimated at more than 91 billion dollars.
The 500 richest people have $ 5.3 trillion according to Bloomberg. A year ago that was 4.4 trillion dollars.
