Jeff Bezos’ net worth just passed $200 billion again thanks to very successful Amazon Prime Days. What does $200 Billion look like? What can it buy? Let’s just say Jeff Bezos has a lot of options.
If he’s a football fan, he could buy every single NFL team. He could buy the league. The Dallas Cowboys are NFL’s highest valued team at $6.43 billion, the Bengals are the lowest at $2.13 billion. The combined value of all 32 teams? $98.98 billion. He could buy the league and have enough left over to purchase every stadium, too.
Bezos likes real estate. A baller CEO like Jeff would not buy anything under $1 million, so he could buy 200,000 million-dollar homes, the equivalent of cities like Scottsdale, Arizona, Glendale, California, or Arlington, Virginia.
How much does $200 billion in cash weigh? Two hundred billion in $100 dollar bills amounts to 4,409,245.2 pounds.
Let’s stack some money. Stacking only one billion $1 bills vertically would take 30 years and would result in a pile 68 miles high. Doing the math for 200 billion worth of $1 bills stacked? 13,600 miles!
He could buy 4,44,444 McDonald’s franchises at $45,000 each. His girlfriend Lauren Sanchez loves helicopters, and is a registered pilot and she flies them. For her birthday he could buy her every helicopter in the world. There are 55,000 or so, if each one cost a million, that’s only $55 billion. She’s worth it.
How about nice hotels? He could go visit fellow Seattle resident Bill Gates, who’s one of the principal owners of the Four Seasons Hotel Chain and buy all 100 properties around the world, and still be the richest person in the world.
