Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos

Elon Musk is poor in comparison to Amazon owner, Jeff Bezos

The so-called Weber-Fechner law examines money in a logarithmic scale. By this theory, we are closer to Elon Musk, that the South African entrepreneur from Amazon CEO and owner, Jeff Bezos. How does it work? Check the interesting analysis below. 

  • In the following graphic you will see how "poor" are multi-millionaires and even billionaires in comparison to Bezos
  • Soccer players like Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus), Lionel Messi (Barcelona), David Beckham (retired) and Neymar (Paris Saint Germain) appear on the list. 
  • Music stars like Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Madonna are also there for comparison.
  • Other celebrities like Donald Trump, Larry Page, Oprah Winfrey and George Lucas (billionaires) seem to have little in relation to Amazon CEO.

The first thing you can think is: "wait, if Musk is 100 times richer than me and only 3 times poorer than Bezos, he is closer to the Amazon giant" but the truth is far away. 

Amazon's stock has grown so much and steadily, that Bezos has a net worth of over $180 billion. Tesla has also grown, but the shares that the South African tech giant has, are "only" worth $45 billion.

From this analysis what we can learn is that a lot of people have a lot of money, but Bezos is, by far, the richest person on earth. He is not a celebrity, an athlete, or a singer, but he is definitely smart and sure is not having problem in going out to dinner and leaving a nice tip.
