The 10 Richest in the World

For a record-setting 40th year in a row, I did not make Forbes list of the TEN RICHEST people in the world. And once again, SpaceX and Tesla CEO (a future owner of Twitter) Elon Musk stands on top of the list.

  1. Elon Musk, $255.8B, SpaceX & Tesla
  2. Bernard Arnault, $144B, Finance
  3. Jeff Bezos, $140.6B, Amazon
  4. Bill Gates, $129B, Microsoft
  5. Gautam Adani, $123.8B, Commodities
  6. Warren Buffett, $115.5B, Finance
  7. Larry Ellison, $101.4B, Software
  8. Larry Page, $99.4B, Google
  9. Mukesh Ambani, $98.5B, Diversified
  10. Sergey Brin, $95.6B, Google

Interestingly, for comparison, Elon Musk is is really rich, but using a scale of today's money, John D. Rockefeller had in the neighborhood of $450 Billion.
