Bill Gates has been at the top of the "Richest Person in the World" list for quite some time but that has changed, Jeff Bezos has moved into the #1 spot. Thanks to a surge in Amazon's stock price and a dip in Microsoft's, Jeff Bezos has taken the top of the list at $90 billion, surpassing Bill Gatest at $89 billion. Even though Bill Gates might not be at the top anymore, reports are saying that he'll be just fine and will be able to continue to live a comfortable life. New York Post has more.
