Billionaire wealth increased by $ 280 billion during the pandemic
The crisis can already be felt in the wallet, but does everyone lose during the crisis?
Well, no, the wealth of US billionaires grew by over $ 280 billion in just a month.
Eight billionaires, including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Tesla CEO Elon Musk , increased their wealth by over a billion dollars each during this time. The record holder was Bezos, who added nearly $ 25 billion to his fortune since the beginning of the year. At the same time, 26 million Americans lost their jobs in the United States (although Bezos hired 175,000).
