The real-time billionaires list published by Forbes indicates that Elon Musk is no longer the richest person in the world. Musk’s net worth decreased following Tesla’s 6% December stock decline.
In late 2022, a combination of business and technological moguls will be on Forbes’ list of the world’s wealthiest people. The Forbes 400, a list of the 400 richest Americans, launched Forbes’ database of the wealthy in 1982. According to current versions, Forbes takes into account the individual’s net worth, philanthropy score, and self-made score. Both George Soros and Rihanna received self-made scores of 10, citing their disadvantaged upbringings prior to achieving success.
Who is the world’s richest person?
According to Forbes, Bernard Arnault and his family will be the world’s richest people as of December 2022. Arnault is the chairman and CEO of the French company LVMH, which owns, among other fashion and beauty brands, Christian Dior, Tiffany & Co., Sephora, and Louis Vuitton.
The fortune of the Arnault family has dramatically increased over the last three years. His net worth was estimated by Forbes to reach $76 billion in 2020 and to be $150 billion in 2021. His net worth was $158 billion in 2022, but as of February 2023, it had increased to $206.7 billion.
How much money will Elon Musk have in 2023?
With a staggering $197.4 billion in wealth as of February 2023, Elon Musk is the second richest person in the world. He passed Amazon founder Jeff Bezos at the top of the list in 2022 after moving up from second place in 2021. Among other businesses, Musk is the founder of SpaceX, The Boring Company, PayPal, and the brain technology firm Neuralink.
