【美国】Jeff Bezos现已比Bill Gates更富有

Jeff Bezos Is Now Worth More Than Bill Gates Ever Was

Jeff Bezos's net worth reached $105.1 billion Monday on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index as Inc. shares added to a 12-month surge that's lifted the online shopping giant's market value by almost 57 percent.

Amazon shares have risen 6.6 percent this year, with a report showing the Seattle-based company captured 89 percent of online spending among dominant holiday retailers in the five-week period beginning the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S.

The latest jump has pushed Bezos's fortune definitively above the high reached by Microsoft Corp.'s Bill Gates in 1999. The Amazon founder passed Gates in October with a net worth of $93.8 billion and his fortune crossed $100 billion for the first time a month later when the holiday shopping season kicked off on Black Friday.


最近的一次上涨使得Bezos的财富明显高于微软公司Bill Gates在1999年达到的高度。亚马逊创始人10月份超过了Gates,净资产达938亿美元,而他的财富首次突破1000亿美元则是从黑色星期五假日购物季节开始。
