This article is devoted to the top 5 richest people in the world published by Insider Monkey recently. Did you know that there are more than 2,100 billioners in the world? Incredible number, right? It especially is, that we know tha bigger part of the world is poverty- and hunger-stricken. While millions of people struggle to make ends meet month by month, „new billionaires are born” year by year. While one (the biggest) part of the world has difficulties with making ends meet, the (smaller) other part has incredible large fortune and many times they seem “not to know what to do with their money”. An adequate example of the latter is the city of Dubai. The possibility of skiing in a mall, or golden doorknobs in the hotels all show huge fortune make people do unnecessary things. In other respects, why should rich people distribute their wealth, since there are millions out there who are not willing to work hard for their success.
And who are the top 5 richest people in the world? Well, let’s see! At first, here is Bernard Arnault, who is a French billionaire. He was the richest man in 2019. Yes, Mark zickerberg can’t be missed from the list, but he is only on the fourth spot with his $16 billion earned in 2020. Elon Musk is in the top three, and I think nobody is surprised. He is the CEO of Tesla and founder-CEO of Space X. As a metter of fact his fortune is worth $108 billion. Then, here’s Bill Gates – he is undoubtedly always in the top 2 richest people in the world. He has $121 billion of fortune which is unbelievable even to say. Who do you think hits top? You say Jeff Bezos? Yes, you are right. However he is incredibly rich, he is said to pay starvation wages to his employees. But perhaps that’s why he became rich: he saves every little cent for himself, and than, like uncle Dagobert, he swims in his billions in the safe.
