See how quickly billionaires earn your annual wage
Stratos Jets has developed a calculator that shows how long it takes for the top billionaires to earn visitors’ annual wages.
The company used data from the Bloomberg Billionaire list to determine how much the 5 richest people in the world have earned or lost so far in 2020.
According to data, Jeff Bezos would earn $35,096, the average yearly wage of his employee, in just 10 seconds. Microsoft’s CEO Bill Gates would earn that amount of money in 24 minutes 22 seconds, whereas Mark Zuckerberg would spend 37 seconds.
At the same time, American investor Warren Buffett and French billionaire Bernard Arnault, who have been financially hit by coronacrisis, would lose that amount of money in 29 and 34 seconds, respectively.
We’ve reported that due to the fact that markets recover amid the COVID-19 pandemic, US billionaires expanded their wealth by over $406 billion.
