Who is most likely to be the world’s first trillionaire?

A report by Oxfam has revealed the man most likely to become the world's first trillionaire

Bill Gates has been predicted as the man most likely to be the world’s first trillionaire, by a new report published by the charity Oxfam, UK website The Independent has reported.

The report predicts that the founder of Microsoft will likely reach the mammoth milestone within the next 25 years.

Oxfam revealed that since 2015 the top one percent of the world’s richest had more wealth than the other 99 percent. The report also revealed that the top eight men had the same amount of money as the 3.6 billion people that make up the poorest half of the planet.

The charity argues that the statistics show the current economic growth is benefitting disproportionately those who are already rich.

Gates is reported to have a net worth of $85 bln and, says the report, could ‘easily’ be a trillionaire by the time he is 86.
