The current pandemic has resulted in huge losses to the business world. A huge number of people have lost their jobs due to the economical strain on the companies. Many organisations have even been shut down due to these losses. Despite this tough situation, it is expected that the founder of the online retail company Amazon, Jeff Bezos, might soon become the world’s first trillionaire.
This is due to the massive increase in demand for online products because of the ongoing lockdown. People are ordering all the essentials from Amazon as it supplies goods by practising all the safety measures. The online retail giant reportedly earned around $75.5 billion in the first quarter of 2020. According to statistics, when the world is undergoing economic trauma, Bezos’s net worth is growing at a 34% average every year. It is also predicted that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg might become a trillionaire in the coming years.
