Die 50 reichsten Amerikaner haven so viel Vermögen wie die ärmsten 165 Millionen

October 12, 2020 - Gemäß einem Bericht der U.S. Federal Reserve entspricht das kombinierte Nettovermögen der 50 reichsten Amerikaner dem Vermögen von 50 Prozent der ärmsten 165 Millionen.

Covid-19 has exacerbated inequality in the U.S., with job losses falling heavily on low-wage service workers and the virus disproportionately infecting and killing people of colour, Bloomberg said.

The 50 richest people in the country are worth almost $2 trillion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, up $339 billion from the beginning of 2020.

At the same time, the poorest 50 percent of Americans collectively hold just $2.08 trillion, or 1.9 percent of all U.S. household wealth.

Meanwhile, the top one percent of Americans have a combined net worth of $34.2 trillion. They hold 30.4 percent of all U.S. household wealth and more than half of the equity in corporations and in mutual fund shares, according to the Federal Reserve data.
