After 24-Year Reign Atop The Forbes List Of 400 Richest Americans, Bill Gates Now Trails Jeff Bezos By $63BILLION

Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos dramatically surpassed Microsoft Founder Bill Gates on the Forbes 400 wealthiest Americans list released early Wednesday. Gates, who has been the veteran title-holder of the well-heeled lineup for the past 24 years, trailed Bezos in 2018 with reported net worth of $97billion. Last year, his net worth was listed at $89billion. As expected, Bezos topped the chart at $160billion - an astounding leap from his 81.5billion in 2017. The retail giant CEO had already been dubbed the richest man in modern history back in July, when his net worth was $150billion. Source
