World’s Richest Men – level 1

30-11-2020 15:00

Bill Gates is the co-founder of the company Microsoft. Bill Gates is the richest man in the world for many years. But Jeff Bezos becomes the richest man in 2017. Jeff Bezos is the boss of the company Amazon.

Bezos’s wealth is $182 billion. Gates’s wealth is $127 billion. It can be much more. But Gates gives a lot of money to charity.

Elon Musk is the co-founder of the company Tesla. Musk is 49 years old. He is the 35th richest man in January 2020. He has $100 billion more in November than in January 2020. He becomes the second richest man in the world. He has more money than Bill Gates now. It is the first time in the last eight years that Gates is not the first or second richest man in the world.

Difficult words: co-founder (a person who starts a company with somebody else), wealth (how much money or things somebody has), charity (an organization that gives money to people who are in a very bad situation).
