Nobody Should Be Billionaire, Zuckerberg Agrees With Sanders

Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook, sides with Bernie

Sanders, Democratic presidential candidate, that no single individual

deserves to be a billionaire.

 

Last September, the 2020 US presidential candidate made a declarative

statement about billionaires during an interview with The New York

Times, saying: “I don’t think that billionaires should exist.”

 

Sanders was explaining his plans for a wealth tax and a National

Wealth Registry.

 

“This proposal does not eliminate billionaires, but it eliminates a

lot of the wealth that billionaires have, and I think that’s exactly

what we should be doing,” he added.

 

Reacting to this during a question and answer session with staff of

Facebook, at the company’s headquarters in California, Zukerberg

agreed that no one should have that much money.

 

He said: “I understand where he’s coming from. I don’t know if I have

an exact threshold on what amount of money someone should have but on

some level, no one deserves to have that much money.”

 

“I think that if you do something that is good, you should get

rewarded. But I do think that some of the wealth that can be

accumulated is unreasonable.”
