The list is dominated by the rich from the technology sector, and currently the richest person in the world is Elon Musk. Since the start of the pandemic, his fortune has grown brutally and, according to the latest figures from Bloomberg, now weighs an incredible $ 236 billion.
The comparison with two other ultra-rich people worth more than 100 billion dollars - Warren Buffett and Bill Gates - shows the big numbers. Namely, the wealth of Elon Musk is greater than the wealth of Buffett and Gates combined. Buffett is in tenth place on the list of the rich and his fortune is estimated at 103 billion dollars, while Gates is in fourth place with 130 billion dollars.
Apparently the billionaire boys Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are trolling each other after Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index estimated Musk’s wealth $222 billion and Bezos $191.6 billion.— ClockOutWars (@clockoutwars) October 11, 2021

Second place goes to Musk's rival Jeff Bezos ($ 197 billion), while Bernard Arnault is in third place with $ 164 billion. He and Buffett are the only people on the list of top 10 billionaires who have not made a fortune in the technology market. Despite all the problems with Facebook and the billions it has lost (for a short time), Mark Zuckerberg is in seventh place with 121 billion dollars, and in front of him are the founders of Google, reports Bloomberg.
