Because, analysis says, Gautam Adani is fast becoming the world’s second richest man, displacing Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Just a few more weeks to wait. Adani became the richest person in the country in the Forbes list last year, displacing Mukesh Ambani, the richest person in the country. And was the third richest person in the world. Just behind European billionaires Bernard Arnault (who is currently the world’s richest man) and Elon Musk. But this time in a few weeks, it is believed that he will remove the mask and come to the second place.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Gautam Adani’s net worth is $121 billion and Elon Musk’s current net worth is $137 billion. While Musk raked in $133 billion last year, Adani earned $44 billion. As a result, it is naturally understood that if Musk’s wealth continues to decline in the same way, it is only a matter of time before Adani becomes the second richest person in the world.
According to multiple reports, if Musk loses assets at this rate and Adani’s assets increase, Adani will overtake Musk as the second richest man in the world in just 5 weeks or 35 days.
Musk was crowned the world’s richest man on December 13. Bernard Arnault, the European billionaire, beat him to the first place. Not only that, Musk is the first person in human history to earn 200 billion dollars or 16 lakh crore rupees in just one year!
On the other hand, Adani is in the opposite direction. He is the first person in Asia to have been ranked so well in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. This is for the first time. Now it is only a matter of time before Chesler will become the second richest man in the world, experts say.
