Minecraft - Fortune of World's Richest Man Depicted in the Game
A video posted on Reddit shows how much money Amazon's CEO - Jeff Bezos - has at his disposal compared to an ordinary man. Minecraft was used for the presentation.
A video was published on Reddit, showing how the fortune of an average Joe (with a distinction between several countries) looks like compared to the fortunes of billionaire Elon Muska and the richest man in the world - Amazon's CEO, Jeff Bezos. The material was created by TikTok user Pratham Soni.
One golden cube in the video below is the equivalent of 100 thousand dollars. To depict the mountain of money owned by Jeff Bezos requires 1.8-1.9 million of such cubes, which together form a giant structure of 128 x 128 x 115 cubes. One has to admit that it looks impressive, especially when compared to Elon Muska's saving, who isn't among Earth's poorest either.
It is worth noting that although the material can be considered an interesting experiment, you certainly should not link it in the bibliography of your Master's thesis on economics. It's also not surprising that many of the people who responded to the topic considered the idea to be a pretext for ruthless criticism of Amazon's CEO.
