Bill Gates, cofundador de Microsoft, es la segunda persona más rica del mundo, con un valor neto estimado de 95.700 millones de dólares, según Forbes.

Es difícil imaginar qué hacer con esa cantidad de dinero, pero Gates sabe cómo aprovecharla al máximo. Si bien tiene algunas indulgencias, como una propiedad de Washington por valor de 125 millones de dólaress, un avión privado y una colección de coches de lujo, solo representan una fracción de su enorme fortuna.

Él y su esposa Melinda afirman que es injusto que sean tan ricos. En lugar de gastar miles de millones en ellos mismos, a menudo lo donan a la caridad a través de la Fundación Bill y Melinda Gates. También se han comprometido a donar la mayor parte de su fortuna a través del Giving Pledge, que lanzaron en 2010.

Así gasta Gates gasta sus miles de millones.
