to Fox Business, in 2020 the world had 46.8 million millionaires,
collectively owning $158.3 trillion. On top of this, there are according
to Forbes, 2,153 billionaires.

the richest person in the world) with a net worth of $121.1 billion,
Microsoft's Bill Gates with a net worth of $110.1 billion, Berkshire

experts predict that there won't be just one, but around 11 of them
within the next 60 years.
The great financial strides that Bezos has made put him in the lead as
the person most likely to become the world's first trillionaire.
