Everyone loves wealth and richness generally at any level be it local, national or international level. Some people get surprised by at the realization when the world’s richest person becomes even richer, by the minute? Life is fair. Especially for a man, such as Jeff Bezos, who runs Amazon, a tech empire that tops the list of some of the most evil companies.
It‘s estimated that Bezos already has $137 billion tucked away in his total net worth. He was the first person to accumulate over $100 billion.
At the annual earnings rate Business Insider calculated an estimation based on the change in his Forbes net worth year-over-year. Bezos has earned $6.54 billion a month, more than $1.5 billion a week, and more than $215 million a day.
Per hour, he earns a whopping $8,961,187 million, that’s roughly 315 times Amazon’s $28,466 median annual worker pay. An Amazon worker earning the $15 minimum wage would need to work about 597,412 hours, or 24 hours a day for about 68 years, just to earn what Bezos makes in one hour.
According to a report published by Business Insider in 2019, Bezos makes an estimate of $2,489(ksh273,416) every second and $152,207( Ksh. 16,719,170) every minute of the day.
With his $121 billion, it’s reported that Bezos could theoretically buy more than 30% of the top 100 U.S. college endowments.
The top three richest colleges in the U.S. based on the size of their endowments are Harvard University with $38.3 billion, the University of Texas system with $30.89 billion, and Yale University with $29.35 billion.
His fortune is greater than those higher learning institutions endowments combined with more than $22 billion to spare.
