Jeff Bezos Beats Elon Musk Again To Become The World’s Richest Man
Elon Musk lost about $4.5 billion on Tuesday after Tesla (TSLA) shares fell 2.4%, taking him to second place on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index ranking.
Bezos‘ net worth also fell by about $372 million but that was enough to take him to top spot, a position he has held for about three years.
As at Wednesday, February 17, the Bloomberg Billionaire’s index currently says Bezos is worth $191 billion compared to Musk’s $190 billion.
Elon Musk’s surge to first place happened in early January, when the 170 million shares of Tesla he already owns.
Bill Gates remains at the world’s third-richest person with $137 billion of worth.
