Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has become the richest man in modern history — his fortune exceeded $ 150 billion.
It is reported Bloomberg.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the net asset value of the founder of Amazon on Monday, July 16, exceeded $ 150 billion. It is around 55 billion dollars more than the state of one of the founders of Microsoft Corp. Bill gates, the second the squeak of the richest people in the world.
It is noted that the 54-year-old Bezos “has overtaken” gates taking into account inflation. So, 100 billion dollars, which gates quickly gained in 1999, will cost about 149 billion in today’s dollars.
Thus, the CEO of Amazon is richer than anyone on earth, at least since 1982, when Forbes published its first ranking of the rich people.
