In his commencement speech at Princeton, Bezos said he had the idea of selling books on the internet while he was working at a New York hedge fund.Torn between his high-paying job and a risky start-up, he chose the start-up.At his peak Gates was worth billion, marking the largest single fortune ever.With little sign that Amazon's momentum may be slowing, Bezos could well be the first 12-digit man, worth 0 billion one day.It's reported, if he was a country he would be the 37th richest on earth.

His net worth has grown by billion over the past five years, surging by billion in the last two years alone — possibly the largest wealth-creation surge in history.

An Oxfam report stated if billionaires like Gates continue to secure these returns, "we could see the world's first trillionaire in 25 years".

Gates is predicted to hit the trillion mark by the age of 86.

Bezos' rise carries important symbolic weight — signaling Amazon's unbridled power and value, presenting a new face of outsized wealth to the world and heralding a new kind of billionaire who is skeptical of philanthropy and has massive reach in culture, technology and media.

Bezos will be a stark contrast to his fellow Seattle-area resident Gates, who has topped the list for much of the past quarter-century and devotes his time and money to philanthropy.
