Amazon founder, Bezos again becomes richest man in the world

Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder has again taken back the title of world’s richest person.

It could be recalled that Elon Musk, Tesla CEO at a time overtook him to become the undisputed world’s richest individual after benefitting from Tesla’s surging share price.

However, Musk had a setback when he lost about $4.5 billion on Tuesday following Tesla’s shares fall to 2.4%, thereby taking him back to second place.

The Bloomberg Billionaires index ranking in a statement on Wednesday said Bezos is now worth $191 billion compared to Musk’s $190 billion.
