Earlier in the week, Amazon had briefly become the world's second trillion-dollar company after Apple. Which obviously begs the question about just how rich is Amazon owner Jeff Bezos. Calculations show Bezos earns a whopping $268,000,000 per day. This essentially means that he earns $11,166,666 per hour. He added $68 billion to his net worth this year.

The founder and CEO of one of the world’s largest marketplaces is a very, very rich man. But how deep are Jeff Bezos’ pockets compared to average Amazon employees?

Earlier this week, e-commerce giant Amazon briefly became the world's second trillion-dollar company after Apple, adding $434 billion to its market value. It goes without saying that nobody benefitted more than its founder. Jeff Bezos added $67 billion to his net worth in 2018, bringing his total fortune to $167 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
