Bezos Richer Than Ever

The economy is in a depression.

However, Jeff Bezos' net worth has increased.

CNN reports that he's now worth nearly $172 billion, a new record for the world's richest person.

This week, Bezos beat his previous wealth record that he reached prior to his divorce from his ex-wife MacKenzie.

Much of Bezos' wealth is tied to Amazon.

He owns roughly 57 million shares, or 12% of the company.

And its stock has soared 56% year to date.
