Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is now far ahead Bill Gates as the world's richest person. With a net worth of $105 billion, Bezos is likely to retain the title for the foreseeable future. It could upend how billionaires view charity. Bill Gates has focused on long-term projects, but Bezos could focus more on the short-term. Bezos recently sent out a tweet asking the public for philanthropic suggestions. He wrote, "For philanthropy, I find I'm drawn to the opposite end of the spectrum: the right now."
