Jeff Bezos overtakes Elon Musk to become the wealthiest person in the world

Elon Musk has been dethroned as the world’s richest man, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. As of today, Jeff Bezos has reclaimed the top spot with a net worth of $200 billion, an increase of over 16% in the past year. This rise was due in part to Amazon’s stock price increasing by more than 16% in the same time frame.

Tesla founder Elon Musk had held the top spot for the past nine months, but his fall from grace was due to Tesla’s stock price dropping by more than 27% this year. Despite this setback, Musk remains one of the most influential and innovative entrepreneurs in the world today.

The list of billionaires is dominated by men, with only a few women making an appearance. Francoise Bettencourt Meyers is currently the richest woman in the world, ranking at No. 15 on the overall list. She is the granddaughter of Eugène Schueller, who founded L’Oréal and built a beauty empire that continues to thrive today.
