Who are the Richest Millennials on the Planet?

Published

on

There are around 2,755 billionaires currently on planet Earth (although we could temporarily subtract one while Jeff Bezos’ rocket was in “space”). These billionaires have an estimated combined wealth of over 13 trillion dollars. And since the pandemic began, many have just gotten richer. Out of these thousands of billionaires, there are only 100 that were born between 1981 and 1996, making them part of the generation we call millennials. As a person who is also in their mid-thirties, I can’t even begin to fathom what I would do with a billion dollars. I would love to ask the folks on this list of the World’s 25 Richest Millennial Billionaires put together by Visual Capitalist, what their day-to-day life is like. Do they drink Starbucks like the rest of us? Watch Netflix like the rest of us? Stay at home in sweatpants like the rest of us? Ride hydrofoiI surfboards like the rest of us? Oh no, wait that is actually just something Mark Zuckerberg does. And he can do pretty much any activity he wants to do because he tops this list of millennial billionaires with a staggering $97 billion in net worth from his website Facebook.

Next on the list is Chinese billionaire, 37-year-old Zhang Yiming who also made his money in the tech industry with an app many millennials use every day called TikTok. Yiming has made 35.6 billion dollars with his creative platform where users can make quirky short videos with music. The third spot on this list belongs to female billionaire, Yang Huiyan, 39, who made her billions with her family in China in the real estate industry with real estate.

Amazon has been making bold acquisitions from the get-go and has infiltrated practically every market. Amazon’s most recent acquisition was of MGM Holdings in 2021 for a hefty price tag of $8.45 billion. You may recognize MGM by its renowned roaring lion, which is now a fitting representation of Amazon’s retail domination. Amazon’s biggest acquisition was in 2017 when it purchased Whole Foods Market for $13.7 billion, igniting its venture into the grocery industry. Since then, Amazon has given Whole Foods delivery “wings” – customers can order groceries and receive them in as little as two hours! In 2014, Amazon acquired live-streaming platform Twitch for $970 million, which many were shocked about at the time. It was a smart move considering the video game industry continues to grow, earn passionate fans, and influence society as a whole.

How Much Teachers Spend on Their Classrooms in One School Year

Published

on

It was twenty years ago that the educator expense deduction was set, and today, tax time is always a difficult reminder for teachers across the United States that the deduction itself isn’t quite enough. The educator expense deduction has allowed teachers to deduct up to $250.00 for out-of-pocket classroom expenses since 2002, and the maximum amount has remained the same today.

One of the major issues lies in that on average each year, teachers are spending an average of $750.00 of their own money for classroom expenses, which is an astounding three times more than they’re able to deduct around tax time. In the United States alone, teachers have spent about $2.8 billion of their own money, for their students, on supplies like pencils, paper, cleaning supplies, books, software and more.

A look at this visualization, found via My eLearning World shows the breakdown of how teachers are spending on their classrooms, with this pie chart broken down into six different areas. The leading area of expense is the non-consumable supplies, which includes books and software.

  • Non-consumable supplies (books, software, etc.): 23.6%
  • Class decor: 21%
  • Consumable supplies (pencils, paper, etc.): 17.4%
  • Food & snacks: 14.8%
  • Prizes: 14.6%
  • Cleaning supplies: 8.6%

Teacher salaries have not been keeping up with inflation either. Since 2015 alone, the spending on classroom supplies for teachers has increased approximately 25%, yet they’re still only able to deduct $250.00 at maximum at tax time. Some have even said that the cost of classroom supplies is $250.00 each month.

Per NPR, it’s reported that about 55% of those who are still teaching as a profession are strongly considering leaving the career behind for something else, much sooner than they had originally planned to. With an estimated 567,000 less teachers than there were prior to the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the shortage of educators in the United States is alarming, but perhaps with good reason.

Did you know that the Jim Beam Distillery has been in operation since George Washington was president? It was established in 1975, making it the oldest business in Kentucky. That’s why I love gathering content to share with Chartistry; you get to learn all sorts of obscure trivia!

The oldest business in the United States that is still operational is the Shirley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia. The grounds were first established in 1613 by English merchant and politician Sir Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr. Here is another fun fact about the baron; the bay, river, a Native American people, and a U.S. state were all named “Delaware” after him.

The second oldest business in America is Tuttle’s Red Barn in Dover, New Hampshire, established in 1632. There are claims that it is the oldest known family-owned farm in America, but this has been challenged. It has been passed down across eleven generations since John Tuttle arrived in the New World with a land grant from Charles II of England. It was originally 20 acres, but it expanded to its peak of 240 acres during the 20th century. Nowadays, the farm’s largest crop is sweet corn.
