Tesla Now Worth $1 Trillion, Elon Musk Reportedly Richer Than Anyone in Recorded History

It looks like we have a new #1 for richest person in the world. That honor now belongs to Tesla founder Elon Musk. Tesla has become the sixth company ever in the U.S. to be valued at $1 trillion, and that means big bucks for CEO/“technoking” Elon Musk. Forbes estimates that Musk is now richer than he’s ever been, and likely richer than any person to walk the planet before him, as he’s now valued at $255.2 billion. Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index is estimating $288.6 billion.
