Sadly, the billionaire’s position as the wealthiest person in the world was short-lived after his fortune fell by nearly $14 billion in one day.
Shares of his electric-vehicle maker, Tesla, fell by nearly 8% on Monday, Jan 11. This pushed Musk’s fortune down to US$176.2 billion.
He is now about $6 billion behind Bezos, who has a net worth of $182.1 billion.
