As of Thursday the 27th of July, The WORLD’S RICHEST MAN “JEFF BENZOS” was declared………
According to Forbes and Bloomberg, the Amazon CEO had a net worth of over $89 billion as of the close of markets Wednesday, while Bill Gates had a
net worth of just over $90 billion.
Amazon’s share price has jumped by more than $15 a share overnight, and was recently trading near that level,
while Microsoft is down slightly. But it dropped as much as 4 percent
after hours after Amazon missed expectations on its earnings report, sending Bezos’s net worth back down.
Even if Bezos doesn’t end the day as the richest man, he will likely take the crown from Gates more permanently in the coming days and weeks.
When he hits the mark, Bezos, who started selling books from his garage 22 years ago, becomes the first man
to bump Gates from his perch in seven years and is only the sixth man to hold the “richest person” title in the past 30 years, according to Forbes.
This may sound contradicting, but for one second, it’s true
