ELON MUSK OVERTAKES JEFFREY BEZOS AS THE WORLD’S RICHEST PERSON, WE’RE TALKING SERIOUS MONEY
So I’m not sure how I feel about this news. Sure, everybody wants to be rich. But so many of the richest people out there who don’t keep hidden and talk publicly seem like random tools. At least. And, to be sure, Elon Musk and Jeffrey Bezos both fall into the random tools category. And when we say richest random tools, I do mean the richest. They are the two richest people in the whole damn world. And since Tesla’s stock has taken a sharp turn for the better since Democrats took control of the US Senate, Elon Musk’s personal value has jumped more than a wee tad.
ELON MUSK TAKES THE RICHEST TITLE WITH OVER A BILLION MORE THAN BEZOS, OVER $185 BILLION
So how much money makes the world’s richest man? Well, a shit ton. Elon Musk is now worth over $185 billion dollars. Bezos is still right there, though, with a personal value of only one billion dollars less. That’s some serious cheddar, moolah and insulation to be some random tools. And, if you look at that picture above, that there looks like a random tool. And, well, that’s pretty much a fair assessment, don’t you think? But billionaires like Musk operate in a different world and just don’t see things the same way we do.
TESLA STOCK WENT WAY UP AS SOON AS DEMOCRATS TOOK CONTROL OF SENATE, MAKING MUSK THE “MAN”
Here’s an easy way to compare. For Elon Musk, Democrats winning both Senate elections in Georgia to take control of the US Senate means his personal value has gone up in just a few days enough to make any of us rich for life. And our families. And grandkids. Just that little increment. Because with Democrats in control, a company that makes electric cars and solar panel roofs and the like will likely sell more products. As it should. But for us? Democrats in control of the Senate means we’ll get a $2,000 check. If, that is, you make under $75,000 a year.
So, I’m not complaining. Lots of folks need that help in these insane times. But $185 billion for one person like Musk is just something else entirely.
