    No, because even their wealth is tiny compared to how much money there is in the world economy.

    no, to do that it has to increase money supply. Only the FED can do that when the Treasury has printed more dollars. Jeff and Bill can spend only money already in circulation.

    US GDP last year was over $21 trillion, chucking a few billion into that won't even make a ripple.
