Jeff Bezos is behind.
The fact that Elon Musk became the first person whose personal fortune was reduced by more than $ 200 billion, Bloomberg reported, citing public statistics.
Musk’s maximum net worth was $340 billion at the beginning of November 2021. At the end of December 2022, this figure dropped to $137 billion amid a sharp drop in Tesla shares.
In early December 2022, Musk also ceased to be the richest person on the planet according to Forbes. He was outstripped by French businessman Bernard Arnault, owner of the LVMH holding – Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy.
At the end of 2022, Telsa stock lost $85 billion in a week. Investors, among other things, expressed concern that Elon Musk began to pay more attention to Twitter, which the billionaire had previously bought.
