Elon Musk just leap-frogged past Jeff Bezos to become the richest person in the world.
Thanks to an increase in Tesla's share price, Musk is now worth about $185 BILLION. What's even crazier than that total is the fact that at the beginning of 2020, he was worth $27 billion.
So his personal fortune grew by $158 billion. In a year.
That increase is greater than the entire fortune of Bill Gates, who's worth a mere $132 billion.
Bezos is still a very close second, with $184 billion.
