Bezos reclaims top spot as world’s richest man

Jeff Bezos has reclaimed his title of world’s richest person, ending Elon Musk’s roughly six-week reign atop the list. Musk lost about $4.5 billion Tuesday after Tesla (TSLA)shares fell 2.4%, which was enough to knock him to second place on the Bloomberg Billionaires Indexranking. Bezos’ net worth also fell as the broader stock market lost a bit of ground — but his loss wasn’t as extreme, only taking a hit of about $372 million. That was enough to recapture his title that he held for about three years. The index currently says Bezos is worth $191 billion compared to Musk’s $190 billion.
