Gautam Adani outdo Warren Buffet as 5th richest billionaire
Gautam Adani, the billionaire CEO of the Adani Group, is now the fifth richest person in the world, according to data from Forbes. The Adani Group runs a number of businesses, including airports, ports, and power generation and distribution. In the early hours of Monday, Adani and his family had a net worth of $123.2 billion, compared to Warren Buffett‘s $121.7 billion.
Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, is at the top of the Forbes list right now. His net worth is $269.7 billion. In third place is Jeff Bezos (net worth $170.2 billion), LVMH owner Bernard Arnault and his family (net worth $166.8 billion), and Microsoft founder Bill Gates (net worth $130.2 billion), according to the data. Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani is in eighth place with a net worth of $104.2 billion.
Gautam Adani said last week that if the country has a $30 trillion economy by 2050, it can also be home to a country where no one goes to bed hungry.
The year 2050 is about 10,000 days away. Over the next few years, I think we’ll add about USD 25 trillion to our economy. This means that every day, the GDP grows by USD 2.5 billion. Adani believes we will have eradicated all sorts of poverty by then.
