Jeff Bezos is about to lose the title As World’s Richest Man1 min read

The global business tycoon and the founder & CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos is on the verge of losing his world’s richest man title to none other than Bill Gates.


Shares of the greatest online retailer fell 4 percent to $US1,712 ($2508) at 9.45 am in New York, a day subsequent to revealing its first benefit decrease in quite a while.

The fall in the stock price made Mr. Bezos set to see his riches fall by $7bn (£5.5bn) as shares in the online retailer tumbled, which would have cleaned $80bn from Amazon’s worth and let Microsoft Co-founder Bill Gates the chance to regain his lost title.

On the other hand, Bill may have never surrendered the top spot were it not for his donations. He has given more than $US35 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation since 1994.
