“A struggle at the top of the list of the world’s richest people!” This is how the Parisian media commented on the ongoing changes in the Forbes rating. For several hours, Frenchman Bernard Arnault was in the first place – the head of the LVMH department, which includes, among other things, famous fashion houses such as Dior and Louis Vuitton.
French media confirmed that on Monday – after the opening of the Paris Stock Exchange – Shares of the companies, jointly owned by Bernard Arnault, have reached a record high and surpassed billionaire Jeff Bezos – founder of Amazon – in the Forbes ranking.
However, it was enough to wait a few hours – for the New York Stock Exchange to open – for the temporarily exploding American to return to first place. His fortune was estimated at $ 187.7 billion, which surpassed the French by $ 1.2 billion.
Parisian commentators suggest this Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, there has been such a sharp ‘squabble’ at the top of the list of the world’s richest people.
Let’s remember that Bezos was recently bombed for a short time by Elon Musk – the founder or co-founder of these companies PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and Neuralink.
Indestructible Jeff – as some commentators call him – is quickly back on the throne. Experts explain that Amazon has shown that it cannot be dispensed with during lockdowns in various countries.
