Billionaire Bonanza 2020: Wealth windfalls, tumbling taxes, and pandemic profiteers

Billionaires dominate our politics, culture, and economy. Their wealth, as this report shows, has concentrated mightily over the last four decades — even as the number of U.S. households with zero or negative net worth is increasing and most of us are living paycheck to paycheck.
