The three wealthiest people in the United States – Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffett – own more wealth than the entire bottom half of the American population combined, a total of 160 million people.
The three business moguls have a total wealth of $248.5bn (£189bn), while America’s top 25 billionaires together hold $1tn in wealth – about the same amount as 56pc of the US population combined.
