Getty/Chip Somodevilla Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world with a fortune around $130 billion. At a recent awards event hosted by Axel Springer, Bezos said he liquidates a whopping $1 billion in Amazon stock every year to fund Blue Origin. "You're not going to spend it on a second dinner out," Bezos said of his wealth. By this point, the richest man in the world is more focused on ways to spend his $130 billion fortune than acquiring it.
