Under the effect of Corona, the global economic situation became unstable. Employees have been laid off in a number of companies. A large number of institutions have also closed. The impact on the ultra-wealthy, on the other hand, does not appear to have been significant. Furthermore, their fortune has multiplied many times over. According to Forbes, a total of 1,800 new names have been added to the world’s 260 billionaires.
There are several persons on this list who are very wealthy. They make at least ten billion dollars per year. In 2021, the top 10 millionaires will have a combined worth of $456 billion. All six people on the list are citizens of the United States. The majority of them work in the IT industry, either directly or indirectly. According to the magazine, the fortunes of these wealthy Americans have increased by a total of 304 billion dollars this year. India, France, China, and Hong Kong are the other four lucky affluents.
