Zara Founder Briefly World’s Wealthiest Man

CBC reports that the founder of Zara, Amancia Ortega, was briefly the world’s wealthiest man, overtaking Bill Gates on Friday.  But when Microsoft stock soared after releasing earnings, that title returned to Bill Gates, just hours after he lost it.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

  1. Isn’t it ironic that the maker of clothing called “fast fashion,” designed to be worn a few times and thrown away, lasted on the list for a brief period of time? Answer: Yes.
  2. How does Bill Gates keep getting richer, when it seems Microsoft has been missing the mark for some time? Answer: do you really need six XBOXs?
  3. Why doesn’t Zara make Microsoft Office? Imagine how rich someone would get if that had to be replaced every three weeks.
