Well he is the richest man in the world on paper, his real wealth is under 100 million, the rest is stock in his companies or part ownership....
Tesla stock went up 700% last year and has gone from $650 a share to $820 this year.... I don't hear anyone talking about them going bankwupt in a few months anymore...... Space X are also going great guns as is his other start ups, Boring Company is worth over a Billion as well....


I'd say Bill Gates would be the actual richest man as he is retired and isn't really invested in Microsoft any more.....

hehe doesn't really matter Tesla stock is still going up like mad so give it a day or 2...
It's interesting how different the two sources are.....

Basically it doesn't really matter in elon or jeff's case as it's mostly stock and will not be touched for years....
18 months ago Elon was only worth about 20 billion...

I'm sure once you get to his wealth, a few billion more or less makes no real difference.;)

What can you buy with $195B that you can't buy with $170B?


I only wish I could find out first hand:cry:
yup i'm sure Elon's quality of life is no diferant than when he was only a Billionaire....

having said that though, I think his wealth is only just beginning.. I bet he will be the first Trillionaire and not that far away.... Analyst are saying now that just the Energy division will be worth 3 times Tesla's current value in 5 years.
Plus Space X have gone to Beta with their internet service that will be worth 100's billions....
Boring is just finishing the Las Vegas tunnel and will be a good little earner as well...

Ha! I saw a video where some pranked a lousy parker by parking a car inches from the lousy parker’s car. Worked well, hilarious videos of fat women getting in the passenger side and moving to the driver’s side.

One car had doors similar to that, the driver could get in on the drivers’s side. “Oh well” was the comment.
