Gates Loses Position – Is Bezos Next?

(FinancialHealth) – Elon Musk has done it again. Just last week he pushed past Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, taking his position as the third richest person in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index.

But now, just barely a week later, he’s made another huge jump, surpassing Bill Gates and taking his position in 2nd place on the list. The change came after a banner week for SpaceX, as well as an announcement that Tesla will find its way to the S&P 500 index this December.

How long will it take for Musk to surpass Amazon’s Jeff Bezos for the top position? CNBC’s Robert Frank breaks it down for us. Time will tell, but if Musk can make it from the 35th to the 2nd position in only 11 months, we’re sure it won’t be insanely long before he hits the number one spot!
