Before moving on to the more interesting questions, let’s see a short bio to get a better idea of who we are talking about.
- How much does Jeff Bezos earn per minute

1. Jeff Bezos, biography
Jeff Bezos was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico from a family of humble origins, his mother conceived him when he was sixteen with an older boy who left to marry Miguel “Mike” Bezos, a Cuban who emigrated to the United States when he was only 16 years old. .
The young Cuban adopts little Jeff from whom he then takes his name following the adoption.
Jeff Bezos attended school and graduated from Princeton University in 1986 with a degree in Electronic Engineering.
Immediately after graduating, he began working on Wall Street in the IT sector, more precisely on the construction of an international trade network of a company known as Fitel, then at the Bankers Trust, and, finally, in a financial company of hedge funds of New York, DE Shaw & Co.
The turning point came when in 1994 he quit his $ 223,000 a year job to found what is now called AMAZON.COM under the name of cadabra.com in the garage of his home, initially a simple online bookstore.
On May 15, 1997, Amazon.com enters the stock market, on the NASDAQ, under the symbol AMZN.
With the Amazon site his life is destined to change forever, Jeff Bezos becomes the richest man in the world and the first man in the history of mankind to own over $ 200 billion, making him the richest man in history.
Today Amazon.com founded by Jeff Bezos of which he is currently also CEO, is the largest ecommerce site in the world, with a turnover of over 200 billion dollars in 2019.
Just think that 42% of online purchases in Italy in 2019 were made on Amazon, thanks also to the possibility of being able to count on a vast catalog of over 500 million products available and at the most accessible prices on the web.
3. How much does Jeff Bezos earn per minute
The question that many people ask themselves is this.
According to an estimate made by Business Inside, Jeff Bezos earns a whopping 149,353 dollars per minute, which is almost three times what an average American earns per year.
With numbers like this it’s clear that what Jeff Bezos can afford is beyond our imagination at least from an economic point of view.
4. What Jeff Bezos owns
That’s why we thought it might interest you or at least intrigue you how Jeff Bezos spends his money!
Do you know the famous American newspaper Washington Post? Just think, he bought it for only 250 million euros! : D
Now we don’t know what Jeff’s craziest expense was but certainly one of these is the purchase of a watch, the legendary “The Clock of the Long Now” which will work perpetually for the next 10 thousand years, guess how much it has paid? Only 42 million euros, yes a watch! : D
But it does not end there, this is only the tip of the iceberg, in fact, the first proceeds of Amazon were used to found another company, Blue Origin, a company that deals with travel and aerospace transport in development!
Jeff Bezos also bought Whole Foods Market, an American supermarket chain, spending about 14 billion dollars, peanuts for our darling, and with a billion dollars instead he took over PillPack, an online pharmacy.
During his life he has also made several other important purchases that we are not going to tell you, we just wanted to give you an idea of who Jeff Bezos is.
5. Why Jeff Bezos is so rich
The reason is that this man had the b*****s to quit a secure job worth over $ 200,000 a year to carry on a dream.
Who is this “fool” who would leave a job with potential like this to open an unknown business in the garage of their home?
Jeff Bezos aside from the courage he showed he became rich also because he had the right idea at the right time and pursued it!
In fact, in the historical period in which Amazon was born, the situation was favorable, people were slowly entering the internet and the competition was very low compared to our days in which we find ourselves in a market that is now saturated at every level of any sector.
With this we do not want to take away the merits, Jeff Bezos has used a favorable condition to start an online business like Amazon but in any case in a period in which someone else would have given him the id ** t to leave his job to do this in that era.
Jeff Bezos had the courage to do what few would, he followed a dream, and it paid off.
