A Visualization Of The World’s Richest People, 1985 – 2023

This is an animated bar graph visualizing the world’s fifteen richest people (royalty excluded) from 1985 – 2023, with their associated companies also highlighted. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly, that even the poorest of these people is entirely too rich. I don’t even have any money and I still give it all away. Does that mean I’d make a great rich person? Yes, and I’d really like the opportunity to prove it. Unfortunately, rigging Powerball is proving a little more difficult than I originally anticipated.
