Jeff Bezos’ net worth makes him the richest man on the planet

Jeff Bezos Net Worth

We’ve got bad news if you’ve ever wondered how Jeff Bezos’ net worth compares to yours: He makes more than you — a lot more.

Even crazier? Jeff Bezos’ net worth is more than other ultra-rich people like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

The Amazon founder was just named as the richest person of all time, according to the Bloomberg billionaire tracker, with a net worth of over $105.1 billion dollars. Much of that wealth is from his 78.9 million shares of Amazon stock — a stock that keeps climbing thanks to a year-long price surge that increased the company’s value by almost 57 percent.

Not bad for a man who started Amazon.com in 1994 and was still headquartered in a one-room office in 1999.

 

 

Don’t feel too bad for Bill Gates’s net worth, though: He would still be number one if it wasn’t for all the money he’s given away to charity via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

It looks like Jeff Bezos’ net worth will only continue to grow, too: Money magazine says that Amazon will permeate every part of our lives by 2028 with services that include prescription medication, a smarter Smart TV, a new cryptocurrency to rival bitcoin — and even Amazon-branded cities.
