Following the announcement that the Federal Reserve is expected to announce an increase in interest rates in an effort to combat inflation, the stock market has dipped, marking the biggest decrease since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Billionaires such as Elon Musk felt the dip as his personal fortunes decreased by a staggering $25 billion over seven days.

Notably, former Amazon CEO and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos also felt the drop as reports indicate a loss of $20 billion over seven days. According to a Bloomberg analysis, the dip in the stock market didn't just affect Musk and Bezos, as the top five technology billionaires collectively lost $67 billion over the same seven-day period. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg lost $10.4 billion, Google founder Larry Page lost $7.6 billion, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates lost $4.3 billion.
