Corona epidemic: wealth of 5 US moneylenders including Zuckerberg, Bill Gates increased by $ 434 billion

Millions of American citizens have lost their jobs in the Kovid-19 epidemic, while the wealth of the country’s billionaires has increased by a total of $ 434 billion. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ assets grew by $ 34.6 billion. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth increased by $ 25 billion. The top five US billionaires – Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Oracle’s Larry Ellison – grew by $ 75.5 billion, or 19 percent, in total assets.

According to the Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) and the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), “America’s billionaires have grown economically, while the rest of America was closed during the first two months due to the corono virus epidemic.” IPS program director Chuck Billins and co-author of the ‘Billionaire Bonanza 2020’ report on this inequality said, “The increase in wealth of billionaires during a global epidemic underscores the uneven secrecy.”
