Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Unseats Bill Gates On Forbes 2018 Richest List

Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos, for the first time ever, has topped Forbes’ list of the world’s richest billionaires.....



Bezos becomes the first person ever to head the list with a 12-figure fortune estimated at $112billion, according to Forbes. The Amazon chief has leapfrogged Microsoft founder Bill Gates in recent months to take over the top spot as world’s richest human.

In the last year, Bezos’ net worth has spiked by $39billion, the largest one-year gain in history. This past year, there were 2,208 billionaires from 72 countries worldwide, according to Forbes, including the first ever from Hungary and Zimbabwe.

Collectively, this group of billionaires owns a total sum of wealth estimated at $9.1trillion. The United States has the most billionaires – 585 – followed by mainland China, which counts 373 billionaires.

This year's list includes no Saudis because all 10 Saudi billionaires who appeared on last year's had their personal fortunes taken away from them by the country's up-and-coming defense minister, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, according to Forbes.


The crown prince moved to consolidate power, though the government claims he stripped his relatives of their fortunes as part of an 'anti-corruption' campaign.
