Zuckerberg Tops List of Highest Paid CEOs with $2.28 Billion

Zuckerberg is top cat among the money makers in the heart of capitalism, the United States. He gets most of his $2.28 billion from shares that are rightfully his since the launch of Facebook. The social network sure has taken the world by storm. At present the top ten highest paid executives have so much cash at their disposal that it beats all previous records. 

It seems whereas there are still huge swathes of poverty in the world, a great deal of wealth is concentrated in a few hands too. While two of the top ten CEOs (that includes Zuckerberg) got more than a billion dollars, the rest received a 100 million or less. 

While overall standards regarding pay scale, perks and amenities have gone up, the reality is that there are still many homeless on the street in the United States. And this is the richest nation in the world right up there with Saudi Arabia. What to say of the rest of the countries (the Third World comes to mind) where the masses barely manage to eke out an existence on meager means. 

The top ten CEOs included Richard D. Kinder of Kinder Morgan who stood at #2. Tim cook of Apple was somewhere in between at #5. And the head of Starbucks, Howard Schultz occupied the 8th position in the list of top ten head honchos. It just goes to show that if your business is really successful, you may earn a hefty amount via stocks and shares in the company.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
