2020, a golden year for billionaires


The planet now has five centimillionaires. #Among them, #Elon #Musk, whose fortune has increased by 140 billion dollars in a year.

A crisis? #What crisis? #Despite the spectacular drop in GDP almost everywhere in the world, most billionaires have seen their wealth increase in 2020. The planet is now even five centim billion dollars. #According to #Bloomberg’s #Daily #Assessment, #Jeff #Bezos remains the richest man in the world with $ 192 billion.

The founder of #Amazon took advantage of the multiple lockdowns imposed in states affected by the #Covid epidemic. The group’s share, in which it holds 10% of the capital, has soared this year (+ 78%). #With an estimated fortune of $ 167 billion, #Elon #Musk comes behind, followed by #Bill #Gates ($ 131 billion), #Bernard #Arnault ($ 115 billion) and #Mark #Zuckerberg ($ 103 billion).

#Tesla stock rose 730% in one year

#For the founder of #Tesla, the year has been doubly beneficial. #Not only is his business no longer a money pit, his fortunes have grown by $ 140 billion. #No man had ever managed to enrich himself so much in such a short time. #Elon #Musk, who owns 21% of #Tesla, has benefited from investor enthusiasm for the world’s leading brand of electric cars. #Tesla stock has been the most popular in the markets this year, and its price has risen 730% year on year.

#Apart from #Elon #Musk, another billionaire stands out this year. #His fortune has increased by $ 70.9 billion and yet he is virtually unknown outside of #China. #Zhong #Shanshan wrested the title of richest #Chinese in the world from #Jack #Ma. #Unlike the founder of #Alibaba, who no longer really smells of sanctity in his country, this entrepreneur has no particular problems with the #Chinese #Communist #Party. #Zhong #Shanshan waters the country. #He made his fortune by betting on water. #Nongfu #Spring sells bottles by the billions.

The professional career of the new richest man in #China is the dream of a good part of his compatriots. #He started his career as a construction worker, converted to journalism before setting up his business. #Zhong #Shanshan also runs a pharmaceutical lab that produces vaccines and is working on a nasal spray against covid 19.

#As for women billionaires, the year has been rich in twists and turns. #Françoise #Bettencourt #Meyers had ceded #MacKenzie #Scott her title of richest woman in the world in #September. #She has now recovered it with a fortune estimated by #Bloomberg at 76 billion euros. #Far more than the ex-wife of #Jeff #Bezos ($ 59.1 billion) who has donated a lot this year. #It shed $ 4 billion from which 384 associations benefited. #And there is no risk of overtaking the heiress of L’#Oréal again. #MacKenzie #Scott is indeed committed to giving at least half of his fortune during his lifetime or in his will.
