Bill Gates is no longer the richest man in the world

The founder of Amazons Jeff Bezos took from Bill Gates the title of the richest man in the world with $ 91.4 billion worth of assets. Bezos’s shares rose 2.5 percent on Thursday, so its wealth is now 1.4 billion behind the assets of the co-founder of Microsoft. Bezos (53) owns 17 percent of Amazons shares, whose total value has risen to more than $ 500 billion.

Having established this online sales platform, Bezos focused on working with the space rocket Blue Origin and the US Washington Post magazine, which in 2013 bought for its own $ 250 million.

Earlier this year he paid 23 million for the old textile museum in Washington and turned him into a family home in the neighborhood where his neighbors would be the Obama family and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

The Bezos family still owns real estate in Seattle and Beverley Hill.

The growth in the share of the technology sector has led to an increase in the wealth of entrepreneurs such as Bezos and Facebook founder Marka Zuckerberg (33), which is now “weighing” $ 72.6 billion, Forbes said.
