So, there are a lot of billionaires in the world, and you probably know one or two of them. There’s Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote, Warren Buffet and Elon Musk Among others. While these men are all successful above their peers, Elon Musk (worth 38.9 billion USD) is the one among them thought to be most likely to become the world’s first trillionaire. Here is why.
Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla, an electric car manufacturing company. Recently, Tesla earned the distinction of being the most valuable United States automaker in history. The company is worth 86.5 billion USD, a record high for US automakers. The company even beat out much older automaker, Ford.
Currently, the company has a program in place that if successful will raise its value to 650 billion USD over 10 years. If the program is successful, Elon Musk will own 184 billion USD of Tesla stock alone. That would already make him richer than Jeff Bezos, the current richest man. That still doesn’t make him a trillionaire though.
Let’s look at some of his other companies.
