“Pity” the Poor Billionaires in 2022


By Staff Reporters



Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s net worth has shrunk by an astounding $140 billion, slashing his wealth to $130 billion as of 2022, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The sharp decline reflects the roughly 70% drop in Tesla stock this year, driven by investors swapping technology stocks for safer assets, worrying that running Twitter is a costly distraction for Musk, and fearing a US economic downturn and overseas headwinds will hit the automaker’s growth.

Meanwhile, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ wealth has fallen by $86 billion, while Alphabet cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have seen their fortunes shrink by a combined $91 billion. Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates’ net worth has also tumbled by $29 billion, while former CEO Steve Ballmer has taken a $21 billion hit.

Similarly, Oracle cofounder and Tesla investor Larry Ellison has suffered a $17 billion blow to his fortune, while Warren Buffett’s wealth has only dropped by $3 billion. The eight Americans, along with LVMH’s Bernard Arnault, Adani Group’s Gautam Adani, and Reliance Industries’ Mukesh Ambani, hold the top 11 spots in Bloomberg’s global wealth rankings.
