Bloomberg names Elon Musk world’s richest person
Elon Musk became the richest person in the world. According to Bloomberg, the largest Tesla shareholder is worth US$195 billion. Thus, he displaced Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos. The businessman who has been at the top of the list of the richest people on the planet for a long time, is already ten billion dollars behind the 49-year-old Elon Musk. Microsoft founder Bill Gates is ranked third with US$134 billion worth.
The ranking list, however, has no businesspeople from Kazakhstan.

His capital is estimated at more than US$4 billion. The Kulibayev family takes the second place, followed by a businessman Bulat Utemuratov with US$2.8 billion.
