Elon Musk Regains Status As The Richest Person In The World

Jeff Bezos has experienced some difficult weeks. His much-loved rocket launch was widely derided as an expensive waste of money that was shaped like a penis. He is no longer Amazon’s CEO. And worst of all, he’s no longer the richest person in the world. That crown is now perched atop Elon Musk’s head.

Elon Musk: The Richest Person in the World

Elon is currently in his second reign as king. He first snatched the title from Bezos on January 7, 2021. Sadly, Elon’s time in power was brief. Few weeks later, Jeff reclaimed the title. Jeff Bezos maintained his position as the richest person in the world through Monday.

Some other publications have reported that LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault was the richest person in the world for a few weeks from late May to mid-June, but we do not agree. Our data show that Bernard Arnault has never been the world’s richest person. Our very own figures show that Bernard Arnault has increased his total net worth more than any other billionaire worldwide year to far. But not enough to ever be the richest person in the world. Bernard had a $114 billion net worth at the beginning of the year. He is currently worth $164 billion. a $50 billion gain.

How long do you think Elon will maintain his position as the world’s richest person this time? Is this the beginning of a long Musk era? Or do you believe Jeff Bezos is still alive but struggling?
