Il 2022 it’s probably a year that many won’t miss, especially if we think about the rich hi-tech people who have lost a total of 433 billion dollars.

Who are the hi-tech rich people who have lost billions

Among the most important names emerge that of Elon Muskwhich he lost 132 billion dollars, Jeff Bezos con $84.1 billion e Mark Zuckerberg con $80.7 billion.

What caused this huge loss? Surely from a series of unfortunate factors, which began with the persistence of the pandemic.

Musk, who made headlines with the acquisition and his new Twitter policy, saw day after day the title of Tesla drop on the stock exchange, reaching a value of just a little over $100.00 yesterday. However, his assets continue to be worth billions, to be exact 139.

Jeff Bezos has instead seen the collapse of the 50% Amazon titlesbut despite the collapse of the shares, it can still breathe a sigh of relief: despite the 84 billion that went up in smoke, its assets still remain above 100 billion, settling on 108.

Equally unfortunate was Mark Zuckerberg. Meta’s CEO saw fly away 80.7 billionslipping from sixth position to 25th of the world’s richest personalities, with a net worth of $44.8 billion.

Zuckerberg’s collapse could be linked to the risky choices he made with his Meta and to his having invested too much in the metaversoattracting various skepticism even from its developers.

Not only Musk, Bezos and Zuckerberg in the cyclone of losses

Among the “unfortunate” rich are the founders of Google: Larry Page lost 44.8 billion, while Sergey Brin 43.8 billion. Collectively, they burned the equivalent of $88 billion.

Bad for too Bill Gateswhich lost $28.7 billion, with a present value of 109 billion dollars.

The cause of this decline in the assets of the hi-tech giants is linked to several causes: inflation, war, pandemic, resource shortage.

But if the assets have essentially remained at exorbitant figures, the employees of the companies led by these great personalities went less well: Twitter, Amazon and Meta have carried out more or less massive firing campaigns.

And if on the one hand some, like the CEO of Meta, have taken full responsibility for the mistakes they made, on the other hand, like Twitter, the actions have been completely confusing.

The question remains what 2023 has in store for them.
