Amazon’s Jeff Bezos became the world’s richest man for a few hours

Jeff Bezos is Amazon’s founder. He is currently the CEO of the company. For a few hours on Thursday, Bezos became the richest man on the planet for the first time, with a net worth of around $90.6 billion.

Amazon’s share price climbed 1.3% for a few hours on Thursday, inflating Bezos’ net worth to $ 90.6 billion, however, the share price eventually fell again. It might be possible that we see Bezos taking the top spot again sometime in the future as Amazon share price might go up again. Bezos is currently in the top 400 richest persons in the world after Amazon went public in 1998.
