Jeff Bezos Is Now Richest Person In History

Jeff Bezos now richer than Bill Gates ever was; becomes richest person in history

With a net worth of around US$104.8 billion dollars, according to Fortune, Bezos passed Microsoft's Bill Gates' previous record.

Amazon has delivered a big prize to its CEO Jeff Bezos, who is now the richest person on Earth.

The majority of his net worth comes from the 78.9 million shares of Amazon stock he owns. Bezos also owns Blue Origin, a travel business that intends to take tourists to explore space and the Washington Post newspaper. According to publicly disclosed donations, Gates has given away 700 million shares of Microsoft - worth almost $62 billion at today's value - and close to $3 billion in cash over the years.


Some have called Bezos the richest man in history, but according to CNBC's Robert Frank, if adjusted for inflation, Gates' $100 billion fortune in 1999 would be worth about $147 billion today.

Gates, 62, would have a net worth of more than $150 billion if he'd held onto assets that he's given away, largely to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In the third position is Facebook's Warren Buffet, with a net worth of $87.2 billion, while Mark Zuckerberg and Amancio Ortega round out the top 5 with $77.5 and $76 billion, respectively.

Jeff Bezos is now the richest person of all time.
