.For decades Bill Gates has had the distinction of being the richest man in the world. But he is now the second richest man in the world because someone else has overtaken his riches!
Meet Jeff Bezoz, the new richest man in the world. Jeff is the CEO of Amazon and is the richest man today, with his over 90 billion dollar fortune! This change has happened overnight after Amazon's share jumped up by $15 in a day and Microsoft share price went a little down. The situation around these two rich men is expected to stay fluid for the next couple of weeks. But it is expected that eventually Jeff will take the crown from Bill more convincingly.
Jeff has been a billionaire for over 20 years, but it is only in the last 2 years that he has come so close to being on the top. You will be surprised to know that Jeff owns only 17% of Amazon's stock. Just imagine how rich the company is!
