Bill Gates has again been declared the richest man in the world, leaving behind Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who took the throne last year. That's after Amazon's profits fell 28% from last year. Add here the fact that the divorce from his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, cost Jeff a large portion of the fortune.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Bill Gates's wealth is estimated at $ 110 billion. After two years, Gates takes over again the throne of the richest man in the world, as profits from the company he founded, Microsoft (MSFT), have increased by 48% this year.
