The 10 richest men in the world in 2022 could most certainly change the universe if they decided to put their fortunes at the service of social and human causes, some would tell you.

The 10 richest men in the world in 2022 display a colossal fortune, according to revelations made by the American magazine Forbes. Based on figures provided by the American media, the ten largest fortunes on the planet have accumulated more than 1,301 billion dollars in wealth this year, or just over half of Italy’s current GDP.
At the top of this ranking of the 10 richest men in the world in 2022, we find the American billionaire Elon Musk, the boss of TESLA and Space X. According to the revelations made by the American newspaper, the American billionaire is in charge of a fortune estimated at 219 billion dollars this year.
Elon Musk is also the only billionaire in the Forbes ranking to have exceeded the bar of 200 billion dollars in fortune this year. In second place in the ranking, we find the American billionaire Jeff Bezos, who a few years back, had stolen the first place on the podium from Bill Gates.
If he is no longer the CEO of the Amazon group, the founder of the global e-commerce company, however, claims a fortune estimated at 171 billion dollars in 2022, according to revelations made by the American media Forbes. In third place in this top 10 of the world’s largest fortunes, we find the French businessman Bernard Arnault and his family.
According to Forbes, the family fortune of the clan that runs the LVMH brand amounts to 158 billion dollars in 2022. Note that the ranking of the 10 richest men in the world in 2022 is once again vampirized by American billionaires.
Eight of the ten billionaires on this list are of American nationality. One of the big surprises in this ranking this year remains the decline of Marc Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, who became Meta this year. According to figures made public by Forbes, the fortune of the founder of Facebook amounts this year to 67.3 billion dollars.
The founder of the largest social network on the planet is unfortunately not one of the 10 richest men in the world in 2022, a personality who accumulate a total fortune of 1301.1 billion dollars according to the revelations of Forbes.
