The world’s wealthiest person, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, is now worth more than $150 billion, according to Forbes. For perspective, Bezos is worth more than Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Google co-founder Larry Page combined.
Bezos’ bump in net worth came as Amazon’s stock hit a new all-time high Monday on “Amazon Prime Day.” He’s the company’s largest shareholder, with more than 16% stake.
Forbes says Amazon’s stock rise on Monday translates to about a $1 billion boost in Bezos’ net worth.
Bezos also owns the Washington Post and space exploration company Blue Origin.
