Musk’s net worth is estimated by Forbes to be $ 271.3 billion as of Monday’s market closing, up from $ 41.7 billion on Friday.

Even when adjusted for inflation, neither Bill Gates nor Jeff Bezos have ever amassed such wealth. Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, temporarily topped the $100 billion mark in April 1999. Today, adjusted for inflation, that equates to slightly more than $ 165 billion. When Forbes first started monitoring billionaires’ wealth in 1982, the richest individual in America was ship tycoon Daniel Ludwig, who was worth $ 2 billion, or approximately $ 5.5 billion today.
Morgan Stanley analysts anticipate that Elon Musk, who gained the majority of his money through Tesla, will become the first trillionaire, with SpaceX assisting him.
