Amazon’s Jeff Bezos becomes the world’s richest person

When markets opened on Thursday, Bezos had a net worth of $90.6 billion, putting him $500 million ahead of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Amazon stock opened up 1.6% on Thursday, adding $1.4 billion to Bezos’ net worth.

That’s just an incredible amount of money.

  • Mo

    And all he had to do was eat all retail.
