Elon Musk suddenly became the richest man in the world
The scandalous businessman and innovator Elon Musk “took off” from the 50th place to the top of the billionaire rating.
Musk became the richest man in the world thanks to the recent rise in Tesla shares by 5.38%, reports Bloomberg . In general, in 2020, the shares of this company rose by 743%. Now Elon, who barely entered the top 50 richest people in the world a year ago, is on the first line of this rating. His fortune is estimated at $ 188.5 billion.
Musk has overtaken Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates thanks to the stable profit of his business . At the end of 2020, Tesla produced almost 510 thousand electric cars a year. Bezos has been the richest man in the world for the past three years, currently netting $ 184 billion.
In his personal Twitter account, Musk posted a post in which he spoke about his mission: “Half of my money is for solving problems on Earth.” Elon intends to spend the second half on the colonization of Mars by people. He considers it necessary taking into account the risk of the Third World War or a global cataclysm: “If the Earth falls under a meteorite.”
