Looking at the fortunes of the billionaires on Forbes’ annual list, it’s hard to imagine an ordinary person can ever achieve that much fortune. In many countries, an ordinary person can work for a million years to equal the richest billionaire in his country.
For example, to achieve the fortune of American billionaire Elon Musk – the richest man in the world with a fortune of up to 219 billion US dollars -, an average American citizen would have to work for about 3 million years. with the median salary in 2020 at US$68,393, according to OECD figures. The average German is “luckier”, just working continuously for about 900,000 years, with an average salary of 53,475 US dollars/year, they can completely match the richest billionaire in their country – Mr. Dieter Schwarz, chairman of the Schwarz-Gruppe group with major supermarket chains such as Kaufland and Lidl. In 2021, Schwarz has a fortune of up to $ 47 billion, ranking at number 28 on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest billionaires.
The difference between rich and poor is more evident in both China and India. The fortune of billionaire Mukesh Ambani of Reliance Industries Limited is recognized by Forbes as $91 billion, while the average person only has an average income of $5000. To be as rich as Ambani, the average Indian would have to work more than 17 million years
