These are some seriously wealthy people and the entry level to this list is a towering $18.2 billion net worth and that includes cash, stock, and various other holdings. While some are now spending their time trying to change the world, others spend their time owning sports teams, some are still running the company that made them wealthy and some may be among the most active and potentially very successful doomsday preppers, according to a riveting new essay in The New Yorker, reported from a source. Leaders of industry from Silicon Valley to Wall Street are joining the survivalist movement.

Tech Billionaires And Their Hidden Getaways

Tech billionaire Larry Ellison has purchased 98 percent of Hawaiian island Lanai. Larry Hall's Survival Condo still under development is located in Kansas and caters for wealthy survivalists. The former Soviet nuclear warhead, Silo has owned 12 luxury apartments which have all been sold to rich moguls.The co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, spent million of dollars to investment and owned an entire private island, but that didn't stop the billionaire from also picking up large property on the Big Island of Hawaii. Peter Thiel, PayPal co-founder spent a whopping $27 million on a 1.7-acre property in Maui way back last 2011. Meanwhile, Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg reportedly invested over $100 million in a sprawling estate on the North Shore of Kauai last 2014. It also includes a pristine white sand beach.

As a matter of fact, Reddit founder Steve Huffman and former CEO Yishan Wong admitted they both have corrective eye surgery in preparation for the breakdown in western civilization. Reddit CEO said, "If the world ends - and not even if the world ends, but if we have trouble - getting contacts or glasses is going to be a huge pain in the ass." 

Places Of Investments

New Zealand is one of the most popular places in the world for tech moguls to buy an "apocalypse insurance." Also Hawaii, where these tech billionaires already invested millions of dollars in their vacation home, owning an entire island. With that large amount of money they have, they could even buy a country.
