Facebook's Mark Zuckerg, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and Bill Gates are all billionaires. But: Who is the richest?
Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, has committed $2 billion to support schools in low-income areas and help homeless families. This only months after the company resisted a similar effort by the city of Seattle.
The increase in Amazon's stock price since early 2017 has made Jeff Bezos the first person to amass a $100 billion fortune. The list also revealed that, financially, US President Donald Trump did not have the best year.
The public admission of wrongdoing by the Facebook CEO and his pledge to improve are welcome, but not sufficient. It's time to recognize that Facebook, Google and others are modern utilities — and treat them accordingly.
