USA (bbabo.net) - According to the report of the Guinness Book of Records, Elon Musk set the world record for the largest loss of personal wealth in history. Considered the richest man in the world, the businessman has lost $182 billion since November 2021.
According to The Guardian, the billionaire has lost an estimated $182 billion since November 2021, though other sources suggest it could actually be closer to $200 billion.
"Musk's net worth has fallen from a peak of $320 billion in 2021 to $138 billion as of January 2023, largely due to the poor performance of Tesla's stock," global records said, citing data obtained from Forbes.
Analysts admit that the exact figure is "nearly impossible to ascertain," but Musk's total losses "far exceed" the previous record of $58.6 billion set by Japanese tech investor Masayoshi Son in 2000.
