Jeff Bezos loses $ 7 billion in one day
According to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the billion dollars needed to supply America with respirators that represent less than 1% of his fortune.
The "Bloomberg" Billionaires Index (BBI) published that "Amazon" founder Jeff Bezos, who is the richest man in the world, lost 6.8 billion dollars last Wednesday.
The founder of the social networking site "Facebook" Mark Zuckerberg also lost about $ 5.75 billion, as well as the founder of "Tesla" and SpaceX, Elon Musk, about $ 4.24 billion.
And according to the site, the total wealth of the top 10 billionaires in the world has decreased by 37.36 billion dollars in one day as a result of the collapse in global stock exchanges.
For its part, the American magazine "Forbes" published that the wealth of the ten richest people in the world decreased by 34 billion dollars a day.
According to the magazine, Zuckerberg has dropped out of the ranks of people whose wealth exceeds $ 100 billion, and investor Warren Buffett moved to seventh place in the list of the world's richest people, behind Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani.
The decline in billionaires' wealth is due to the sell-off in global stock markets due to the panic that the second wave of the Corona epidemic, including Wall Street, could cause, so that US stock indices will fall within 4%.
