Elon Musk wins prestigious title, surpasses Bezos, Gates, and Zuckerberg.

Elon Musk Becomes World’s Richest Man

Thanks to Tesla’s surging share prices, Elon Musk has now zoomed into the lead as the richest man in the world. According to Bloomberg, Musk surpassed luxury goods mogul Bernard Arnault when Arnault’s LVMH dipped in value on Wednesday.

Bloomberg maintains a list called the Bloomberg Billionaire Index that tracks the 500 richest people in the world and measures their net worth day by day. As of Saturday, Musk led the list with a net worth of $199 billion, with Arnaut in second at $191 billion, according to Bloomberg.

Other notable names on the list include:

  • Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, in third place with a net worth of $148 billion
  • Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, in fourth place with a net worth of $128 billion
  • Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle Corp., in fifth place with a net worth of $119 billion
  • Warren Buffet, investor, in seventh place with a net worth of $116 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, in tenth place with a net worth of $99.3 billion

Bloomberg reported that the luxury brands Arnault’s empire sells, such as Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Hennessy, have fallen on hard times, and noted that stock in the corporation has fallen 10 percent since April.

Elon Musk Reclaims Title of World’s Richest Person

According to Bloomberg, Elon Musk has regained his title as the world’s richest person with a net worth of over $200 billion. This year alone, Musk’s net worth has increased by more than $55.3 billion, largely due to the success of Tesla, which makes up 71 percent of his wealth. In December, Musk lost his top spot to Bernard Arnault after a year of setbacks, including a $138 billion loss in wealth after his purchase of Twitter.

However, Musk’s return to the top has been overshadowed by a new controversy. According to CNBC, Twitter’s vice president of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, quit last week, followed by the head of brand safety and ad quality, A.J. Brown, and program manager Maie Aiyed. This came after Musk’s decision not to ban a video called “What Is a Woman” from the platform, which sparked outrage among some Twitter employees and users.

Despite the backlash, Musk defended his decision, stating on Twitter that “not using someone’s preferred pronouns is at most rude and certainly breaks no laws.” Musk’s comments have reignited the debate over free speech and censorship on social media platforms.
