The founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, has again risen to the top spot in the ranking of the richest people on the planet according to Bloomberg. His net worth is now $187 billion.
In December 2022, Musk lost his lead to Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy CEO Bernard Arnault, who now ranks second with $185 billion.
At the same time, Bloomberg reported that Musk became the first person to lose more than $200 billion: back in November 2021, the billionaire’s fortune was estimated at $340 billion. The main reason for the decline in Musk’s wealth was the fall in the value of Tesla shares.
In 2023, Tesla shares began to rise in price again. In two months, they have risen in price by 70%, and Musk’s fortune has increased by $ 50 billion.
- At the same time, according to the Forbes magazine rating, Elon Musk is still inferior to the French billionaire Bernard Arnault. Third place in both rankings is occupied by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
