Bill Gates Might Soon Become The World’s First Trillionaire So Start Counting The Extra Zeros You’ll Need To Earn: While we are fretting about the upcoming budget announcements and the challenges it will pose on our already empty pockets, there is someone in the world who is getting richer day by day. That someone is none other than Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, who might soon become the world’s first trillionaire.
This is not our prediction, but the work of an international network of organizations, Oxfam International, which works to alleviate global poverty. According the Oxfam’s research, ‘eight billionaires from across the world have as much money as the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of the world’s population.’ What’s more, the report also states that looking at the exponential growth of Gates’ existing wealth, he might become the first trillionaire in the next 25 years, at the age of 86.
Oxfam mentioned that in the year 2016, his wealth rose to $75 billion, “despite his commendable attempts to give it away through his foundation,” the report says. Reportedly, his net worth was $50 billion, when he left Microsoft in 2006. Gates is known for indulging in charitable work, he is also one of the founders of ‘The Giving Pledge’. Oxfam’s hypothetical analysis is based on the rate of growth i.e. 11% per year since 2009 and his current levels of wealth which is estimated to be over $84 billion.
Well, while Gates will get richer in the following years, we will also become something. Do you know what? We will become Nillionaires (one who does not have money of their own).
