Elon Musk is the co-founder of the company Tesla and in January 2020, his net worth was $7.2 billion. But in November, his net worth was almost $128 billion.

In January, he was the 35th richest man in the world, and now he has become the second richest man.

For many years, Bill Gates was the richest man in the world. Bill Gates is the co-founder of the company Microsoft, and he gave more than $27 billion to charity over the years. His net worth is $127.7 billion, and for the first time in the last year, two people have more money than him.

In 2017, Jeff Bezos became the richest man in the world. He is the founder of Amazon and his net worth in $182 billion.

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