Jeff Bezos has had a very successful life. Bezos has removed Bill Gates as the richest
man in the world, cnbc.com says Bezos currently has current net worth of more than $160 billion
dollars. When someone sees this man and all his riches, one might wonder, how does Bezos
acquire such riches? Most famously, Bezos is the owner of Amazon. Amazon also incorporates
companies like Twitch, IMDB, and Whole Foods. Amazon, recently, raised their wages for
underpaid workers, whom they were infamous for underpaying. Another question that arises is
how does Bezos give back to his community? Businessinsider.com says that Bezos just started a
2 billion-dollar fund to help homeless families and raise the education rate in underserved
communities. Most people think that billionaires can be kind of mean with all their money but
Bezos’s actions are pretty admirable.
