Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Is Now the Richest Person In History

A wealth tracker for billionaires (which actually exists, if only to mock the rest of us) has just crowned a new Richest Person of All Time. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is now the wealthiest person in history, CNN lamely reported Tuesday. The billionaire tracker operated by Bloomberg places Bezos’ current amount of amassed cash at $105.1 billion. That haul bests the record held by Microsoft boss Bill Gates and mostly comes from the nearly 80 million shares of Amazon stock Bezos has in his possession. Bezos also has holdings in the Washington Post and the space tourism business Blue Origin.
