Jeff Bezos won and lost 'richest person' title within a day

Due to a sudden surge in the stocks, Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos surpassed Bill gates and became the 'richest person of the world', but for a very brief time period. Later, the Amazon's shares fell down and the Microsoft founder reclaimed the title within few hours. Responding to the abrupt change, Forbes said Gates would have been the undisputed leader had he not donated billions of dollars to various philanthropic causes.

स्टॉक्स में अचानक बढ़ोतरी के कारण, Amazon के CEO जैफ बेज़ोस बिल गेट्स को मात देकर दुनिया के सबसे अमीर व्यक्ति बन गए, लेकिन एक बहुत ही संक्षिप्त अवधि के लिए।बाद में, अमेज़ॅन के शेयरों में गिरावट आई और माइक्रोसॉफ्ट के संस्थापक ने कुछ ही घंटों के भीतर शीर्षक पुनः प्राप्त कर लिया।अचानक हुए परिवर्तन का जवाब देते हुए फोर्ब्स ने कहा कि अगर गेट्स ने विभिन्न परोपकारी कार्यों के लिए अरबों डॉलर का दान नहीं किया होता, तो वे निर्विवाद लीडर बने रहते।
