In 1987, Forbes started this list and, at that time, only six people had the famous title. In the early years, two Japanese real estate moguls, Yoshiaki Tsutsumi y Taikichiro Mori, topped the list until Microsoft’s co-creator, Bill Gates.

From 1997 to 2017, Gates dominated the list, save for two terms. For a single year, in 2008, the first place was held by one of the largest investors in the world, Warren Edward Buffett; and over a period of three years, from 2010 to 2013, the Mexican businessman Carlos Slim Helu was in first place.

Since early 2017, when Gates topped the list of the world’s billionaires with a net worth of $ 86 billion, Bezos has added more than $ 110 billion to his fortune thanks to rising Amazon shares, Arnault has surpassed LVMH’s 225% share rise to more than quadruple net worth, and Musk has earned more than $ 150,000. million in four years as Tesla has become the most valuable automaker on the planet.
