Bill Gates: First trillionaire of history in 25 years?
The fortune of the founder of Microsoft, the richest man in the world according to the ranking of the magazine "Forbes", could reach 1 trillion by its 86 years.
There are several categories of "super-rich" and by 2042, Bill Gates could inaugurate a new one. The founder of Microsoft could own $1 trillion and become the first trillionaire in history.
This is what emerges in particular from a report by the NGO Oxfam on economic inequalities entitled "An economy serving the 99%". And to put his accounts at zero, Bill Gates should "pay a million dollars a day for 2,738 years," the organization calculated.
According to Oxfam figures, eight people on the planet hold as much wealth as the poorest half of the world's population or 3.6 billion people.
Among them, many Americans: Warren Buffet (CEO and chief shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway), Jeff Bezos (founder and CEO of Amazon), Mark Zuckerberg (CEO and Facebook co-founder), Larry Ellison (co-founder and CEO of Oracle ) Or Michael Bloomberg (founder and CEO of Bloomberg LP).
