CNN is reporting that Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of mega-retailer Amazon has just been named the richest person in history. Having the title of the richest person of all time is insane and Bezos’ new title is due to the fact that Bloomberg media (which tracks billionaires) has discovered the current value of Bezos to be an astonishing 105.1 billion USD.  Bezos new wealth injection comes from Amazon’s shares rising 6.6 per cent this year and his holdings in The Washington Post and a tourism business named Blue Origin.

The rise in share values and Bezos’ other holdings helped him surpass Bill Gate who has a recorded net worth of $93.8 billion.  With Amazon’s continued dominance it’s likely that The Bez continues his worldwide dominance.
