Jeff Bezos (Total net worth $124B)
Bezos has become synonymous with his company, Amazon, the online book retailer
turned global e-commerce juggernaut he founded in Seattle in 1994. Mr. Bezos
still runs Amazon, ranked the world's fourth-largest information technology
company by revenue. In addition to retail and tech, Amazon has also ventured
into the streaming game, with a number of original shows in development.
Amazon's stock price surges up, Bezos edges out Bill Gates and moves into
the pole position on Bloomberg's Index. When Amazon's stock eases
up, Bezos can slip into the second position. But Amazon's recent
successes may soon put Bezos out of reach.

"There are two kinds of companies, those that work to try to charge
more and those that work to charge less. We will be the second."
