Just over two decades ago, Jeff Bezos started selling books online from his garage. Today, the Amazon CEO is the richest person on Earth.
Bezos’ net worth topped $90 billion on Thursday, allowing the Amazon founder and CEO to narrowly dethrone Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates as the richest person in the world, according to Forbes and Bloomberg.
If Amazon stock holds steady through trading Thursday, Bezos will officially bump Gates, who has been No. 1 since 2013, from the the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
You too can be a Bezos, thanks to at least partially unfettered CAPITALISM!
