Following another soar in Tesla stock this week, Elon Musk has become the richest man on Earth. At least in terms of capitalization, because the stock price does not mean that he really has the most money.
To date, Elon Musk’s fortune is estimated at $ 185 billion. Previously, the first line was occupied by the head of Amazon Jeff Bezos, whose fortune is now at $ 184 billion.
To understand how ephemeral this estimate is, just remember that just a year ago, Elon’s fortune was estimated at $ 27 billion, so that he did not even get into the top 50 richest people. Since then, however, Tesla’s share price has grown eightfold.
Also keep in mind that Amazon’s market capitalization is estimated at $ 1.6 trillion, well over Tesla’s $ 760 billion. However, Amazon stock is in stagnation, so Bezos’s fortune is about the same.
Considering that Musk also has SpaceX, there is room for growth.
