It’s a known fact that America has the most unequal distribution of wealth and income among all the major superpowers of the world. A handful of some hundred people own more wealth than the rest of the population combined.
People have been engaged in class warfare for decades now. And the income difference is only increasing significantly. Leading the list of the wealthiest people in the world is Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos. The multi-billionaire has a stronghold over the world.
It is said that even if Jeff Bezos ends world poverty with his wealth, he would still be a billionaire. However, the 56-year-old CEO and President of Amazon had to part away with a portion of his wealth when his divorce was finalized.
MacKenzie Scott received a hefty chunk of wealth from her divorce from Jeff Bezos. It made her one of the richest people in the world. However, MacKenzie has been giving away her wealth at quite a significant rate. Just in the last four months, she has donated over $4 Billion towards relief funds and food banks.
MacKenzie Scott’s Net Worth is $60 Billion
MacKenzie Scott is among the wealthiest people in the world. The 50-year-old venture philanthropist is a well-known writer, but the major share of her wealth comes from the divorce settlement of $38 Billion that she received in 2019. It made her the 22nd wealthiest person in the world.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, MacKenzie Davis’s net worth climbed another $23.6 Billion increasing her wealth to over $60 Billion.
However, her frequent charity and donations keep fluctuating the numbers. After she donated $4.1 Billion in the last four months, according to Forbes, MacKenzie Scott’s net worth currently sits at around $55.8 Billion.
MacKenzie Scott pledges to help those struggling in these tiring times
The 50-year-old author is giving away her wealth at an unprecedented rate. Back in July only, MacKenzie announced she’d given nearly $1.7 billion to 119 nonprofit groups. Now she has donated over $4 Billion to food banks and emergency relief funds in just the last four months.
“This pandemic has been a wrecking ball in the lives of Americans already struggling.”
In a Medium blog post, MacKenzie Scott talked about how the Covid-19 pandemic has been extremely challenging for Americans, who were already suffering. She said that she wanted to provide immediate support and aid to those suffering because of the economic crisis. She said,
“The result over the last four months has been $4,158,500,000 in gifts to 384 organizations across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable.”
