Bezos took the top spot from Bill Gates today.
Amazon catapulted its founder to the richest man in the world. When the company’s stock prices hit an all time high today, that took his fortune to over $90 billion just edging out Microsoft founder Bill Gates. As the day progressed the stock prices fell putting Bezos back in the number two spot. We can expect for that title to change hands again very soon. As the Amazon company continues on its path towards world domination, we can expect his fortune to exceed $100 billion.
