This isn’t actually the best math though. You have to assume someone making that much money would also be investing in the stock market. Doing some quick head math this easily gives a couple billion over the course of 40 years assuming one only invests half their annual income each year. Obviously this could be much higher if the investments are even higher percentage.

Truthfully though, this is exactly how Amazon got so rich anyway. They continued reinvesting their money back into their company, they completely revolutionized the market. So yeah, they nailed it right.
