Yeah, you read that depressing headline correctly. Bernard Arnault, who definitely sounds like a rich person, has overtaken Elon Musk as the richest man in the world.

To gain the title he’s been making just over $56,000 AUD A MINUTE for the last six years. What the hell!?

Bernard Arnault and his family are worth $274 billion AUD. That’s $274,000,000,000. LOOK AT ALL THOSE ZEROS!

He owns a big share of ‘Lous Vuitton Moet Hennessey’ (LVMH) which sounds like a bunch of different company names mooshed together but it’s actually a multinational corporation and conglomerate (according to the internet). The company own Fendi, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Bulgari and Tiffany & Co. along side the luxury brands in their name.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go cry into my fresh cup of ‘International Roast’ coffee…
