It’s been a rough year for Mark Zuckerberg. Thanks to a variety of scandals -- primarily focused on issues regarding privacy and user data -- the embattled Facebook founder lost more money in 2018 than any other billionaire, an estimated $15 billion.

2018 was very good to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who ends the year with a whopping $160 billion net worth, making him the richest person in the world. Acknowledging critics of his company’s compensation policies, Bezos increased Amazon’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. What a guy!
