In this way, he joins other top executives in the technology world such as Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
In itself the origin of Zuckerberg’s fortune would be closely linked to the 13% of Facebook’s capital that it owns And, according to the prestigious economic environment, the Covid-19 is far from being a hindrance for him. Specifically, it is estimated that he has been able to earn $ 22 billion so far this year. Bezos reportedly exceeded $ 75 billion in profit.
All this, days after Zuckerberg next to Jeff bezos (Amazon), the CEO of Alphabet (Google) Tim Cook and Microsoft’s Sundar puchai they had to testify before the United States Congress to defend themselves against allegations of monopoly and concentration of power. Specifically, the five big tech giants – Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook and Microsoft – have a combined market value equivalent to 30% of US GDP. A figure that is double what they had in 2018.
