Let's look at the top 10 richest people in the world according to Forbes.


1.  Elon Musk

Elon Musk is the owner of Tesla and Space, the largest electric car and space equipment companies. To date, his fortune is estimated at $ 256 billion, which helped him lead the top richest people on the planet, overtaking the head of Amazon - Jeff Bezos.


Forbes notes that Musk is possibly the richest person who has ever lived on Earth - his net worth is about 4 million times that of the average US family. Even if he spends a million dollars a day, he will run out of money only after 700 (!) years.


Musk is almost a real-life analogue of Tony Stark from Marvel movies and comics - a charismatic and ambitious billionaire philanthropist, lover of cool cars and space. Iron Man director Jon Favreau even admitted that the character played by Robert Downey Jr. is largely based on Elon Musk.


The entrepreneur also has a construction company, The Boring Company, which in 2017 began construction of an underground subway for cars in California. As planned, this should solve the problem of traffic jams.

2.  Jeff Bezos

Bezos is the CEO and founder of the largest e-commerce company, Amazon, and the private aerospace company Blue Origin, as well as a philanthropist, rival to Musk for supremacy in the private space industry, and a bit of an astronaut himself. At the moment, his fortune is estimated at $ 187 billion.


In addition to developing Amazon and flying into space, Bezos is involved in charity work. He owns the Bezos Earth Fund, which aims to mitigate climate change. Through it, he plans to invest $10 billion by 2030 in the projects of activists, scientists and various organizations aimed at combating global warming.


3.  Bill Gates

If you have ever made presentations for school speeches, worked with spreadsheets, or simply used a PC in any form, then one way or another you have dealt with Microsoft products. What can we say, even this very text was written using a program that would not exist if it were not for Gates.


He founded the company in 1975 with Paul Allen, and soon Microsoft became the largest in the field of software development.


Gates earned nearly $7 billion last year and is currently worth an estimated $134 billion.



4.  Bernard Arnault

Bernard Arnault is the CEO of LVMH Mo√ęt Hennessy, a French company that sells the group's luxury goods under the Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, Loro Piana and Bulgari brands.


Arnault is the only Frenchman on the list (recall: most of the rating is Americans) and the richest businessman in Europe. Last year, for some time, he even took a leading place in the top, but only for three days - then Bezos again captured the championship. Arnault earned $63.6 billion last year and is currently worth an estimated $195 billion.


The entrepreneur got rich because in the 1980s he saved the French company Christian Dior from ruin, and then bought out 100% of its shares. Thanks to this, he received about $ 30 billion.



5.   Larry Page

If you are currently reading this article on a phone and it is not an iPhone, then most likely it is running on Google software. Created the company Larry Page together with Sergey Brin in 1998. Page currently leads Alphabet, the parent company of Google. His fortune is estimated at $119 billion.


6.  Sergey Brin

Brin is originally from Moscow, graduated from Stanford University, where he met Page. Capital - $ 115 billion.


7.  Warren Buffett

Buffett is an American businessman and one of the largest and most famous investors in the world. Buffett's main capital is his stake in a large holding company - Berkshire Hathaway in the amount of $116 billion.


Buffett put $34 billion into the Gates Foundation and in 2010 said he would give all of his money (at the time $36 billion) to charity, making him one of the biggest philanthropists in human history.


8.  Larry Ellison

In software development, Oracle is right behind Microsoft. The company was founded by Larry Ellison in 1977. 8 years ago, he left the post of CEO, reserving the right to decide the fate of the company, and began to head the technology development department.


9.  Steve Ballmer

Ballmer led Microsoft from 2010 to 2014. Owns the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA. Popularly known as the main opponent of Apple.


Most of his fortune is almost 5% of Microsoft shares. Recall that the share of Gates himself is 5 times less.


10.  Mukesh Ambani

According to Forbes, Mukesh Ambani is the richest man in India (although he lives in England) and the owner of the largest private sector company in this country - Reliance Industries. Ambani's capital is estimated at $90 billion, which is almost 50% of the shares of his company.


Who dropped out of the top ten in 2022

Separately, it is worth noting the person who for many years kept in the top 10 richest people on the planet, but this time did not get there - Mark Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg is the CEO of the technology conglomerate Meta (activities in Russia are prohibited). It includes: Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus.

Facebook (activities in Russia are prohibited) was founded back in the days when Zuckerberg studied at Harvard. From a small student project, made on the knee by Mark and his classmates, the future social network quickly gained an audience and went far beyond American universities. At the moment, the audience of this social network is 2 billion people.
