Jeff Bezos overtakes Elon Musk to become world’s richest person again
Bezos, 57, saw his net worth tick down by $372M to $191B
Don’t fool yourself folks, The Judo Guy has them both beat.
Last year, Hermitage Capital Management CEO Bill Browder told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he believes the Russian president is “the richest man in the world” with a net worth of $200 billion. Browder has some bona fides to back up his Russia connections; the financier’s firm was once the largest portfolio investor in Russia.
The difference between the three Top Dogs in he the billionaire department; Putin does not broadcast his worth; possibly because a very large portion of it is from illegal t activities.
Just during the Olympics that Russia put on a few years back it was said that Putin made multi billion dollars and shakedowns and kickbacks. I am sure that he does not want that to be validated.
Feb 10, 2014 — Last February, Kozak told reporters in Moscow that Russia was … as the official figures; Nemtsov says as much as $30 billion has been stolen.
I have two different opinions on the excessive worth of the Super Rich. First I admire them for their business savvy (if they did not steal it), and the ability to amass their fortunes; but then I look at them and recognize the great disparity between them and the Have Nots. That I think it’s disgraceful.
Be that as it may; if all the hush – hush conversation about The Judo Guy and his wealth; he has both Bezos and Musk beat. BUTT after 100 billion, does it really matter and who is counting??
