One thing to note here is that Jeff Bezos is the only one who has more that $100 billion in wealth and he’s the first ever person to accumulate that much wealth in the history.

All top 3 richest and 7 out of 10 richest people in the world are from the United States.

Zara founder has been exponentially growing his wealth as Zara has become one of the most popular luxury brands in the world.

Bill Gates has been on the number 1 list for 22 years straight. Jeff Bezos’s wealth is mostly intangible assets and because of his of his large ownership of Amazon’s stocks which could be cut in half if we hit the recession.

To be honest, I don’t know why I am happy to see this list , but the truth is I personally look up to a lot of people on this list and have learned a lot from either their stories or things they’ve said. They really mastered how to make money and keep it consistently coming.
