The Amazon founder added $2.6 billion to his net worth in the past day alone, making his total fortune worth $66.5 billion, Forbes reports. He is now the third-richest person on the planet. To give you an idea how far Bezos has come, back in 1998 when he first appeared on the Forbes 400 he was *only* worth $1.6 billion. Since then Amazon’s stock has risen 5,800%, fueling Bezos’ massive fortune. MG
