Elon Musk Becomes World's Second Richest Man

(WatchDogReport.org) – Elon Musk has seen his electric car business, Tesla, take off in recent years. The automobiles are extremely popular and his company grows daily. He also has a space exploration business that made history in November. All of the success is now paying off.

On November 24, Musk became the world’s second-richest person. His wealth is estimated to be more than $127.9 billion. He nudged Bill Gates out of the second spot; the Microsoft co-founder has a net worth of $127.7 billion.

The news comes one week after Musk’s SpaceX sent its first full staff mission to the International Space Center. Meanwhile, Tesla was invited to be a part of the S&P 500.

It looks as though he’s well on his way to the top spot. Currently, Amazon’s founder is the richest man in the world with an estimated fortune of $182 billion. Although Musk is pretty far behind right now, if his companies continue to do well, he might push the President Donald Trump-hating Liberal out of the top spot.
