World Second Richest Person: India’s Gautam Adani is just a few steps away from becoming the second richest billionaire in the world. To reach this position, Adani will have to beat Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. If Gautam Adani does this, it will be the first time that he will achieve the title of the second richest billionaire in the world. After this, only Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be ahead of Adani. However, it doesn’t all seem so simple.
Why not easy According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the wealth gap between Gautam Adani and Jeff Bezos is $7 billion. Jeff Bezos has a net worth of $152 billion, while Gautam Adani is at the third position in the rankings with a net worth of $145 billion. However, on Wednesday, the difference between Adani and Jeff Bezos was only $3 billion.
It was being speculated that Amazon’s stock would crash as soon as the US stock market opened and Jeff Bezos’s wealth would decrease. This would have overtaken Gautam Adani and could have become the second richest billionaire in the world. However, on the contrary, Amazon’s stock rose and Jeff Bezos’s wealth increased by about $2 billion. Amazon’s stock continues to rise.
Let us tell you that due to the crash of the US stock market after the inflation data, Jeff Bezos had a loss of more than 80 thousand crores. At the same time, Elon Musk also suffered a loss of 70 thousand crores.
