Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is world's richest person

Gates' fortune is now estimated to be $92 billion by Forbes, but the news magazine reports that he would be "far richer" if he hadn't donated around $36 billion to charities (including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) over the years.

Amazon's (AMZN) chief executive Jeff Bezos now holds the title, with a net worth of $105 billion, according to Bloomberg's Billionaire Index.

While Bezos, 53, has held the top spot on the Bloomberg list since late a year ago, his net worth is now more than Gates' ever was, Recode reported.

Gates, 62, would have a net worth of more than US$150 billion if he'd held onto assets that he's given away, largely to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. According to multiple reports, John D. Rockefeller was the richest ever, with a net worth of an estimated $340 billion (inflation-adjusted) in 1937.
