A new year is traditionally a time for new goals and new aspirations. Any self-help expert will tell you that it is better to focus on realistic, attainable goals rather than pie-in-the-sky dreams. So it’s probably not a good idea to set your sights on being the richest person in the world – unless of course, you’re Elon Musk. Elon is starting 2021 in a very unique situation. He is only 20 billion dollars away from becoming the richest person on the planet.
$ 20 billion.
And a dollar. As of this moment (share prices will go up and down), all that Elon needs to do is add his net worth to the top Jeff Bezos’ current $ 190 billion net worth.
And while $ 20 billion may seem like a lot of money, this is what Musk added to its net worth in 2020.
In January of 2020, Elon was valued at $ 28 billion.
They were valued at $ 70 billion in July.
Elon finished 2020 (and starts today) with total assets of $ 170 billion.
This is a $ 142 billion profit in 2020. This is a big gain from Bill Gates’ net worth of $ 131 billion.
So adding 20 billion dollars is a relative bile for Mr. Musk.
Of course, A Ton has also increased in Bezos’ fortunes in 2020 and continues to grow. Any net profit made by Musk will now need to be balanced with any benefit of Bezos. But it should be noted that Musk has seen his net worth grow much faster than Bezos.
They may not accept it publicly, but you have to admit that there is some competitive sentiment among the richest people in the world who have the number one slot at any given time. So Musk might actually have the angle for the title of the richest person in the world in one of his New Year’s resolutions this year – but unlike most others who keep that goal in mind, he may actually get it soon. Can get it.
