It's a good day to be Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, as he's climbing through the ranks of the world's wealthiest people.
According to Forbes, Jeff Bezos has moved into the third-place spot on the list of the world's richest people, unseating Berkshire Hathaway President and CEO Warren Buffet.
At this moment, the internet entrepreneur's net worth comes in at a whopping $65 billion.
Buffet isn't far behind, however, with his net worth coming in at just $300 million below that of Bezos.
What's funny about this shift is that Bezos and Amazon didn't do anything in particular to move into the third-place spot, as this is more down to the actions of Buffet.
Warren Buffet has long been known as a philanthropist, and his recent donations to charity coupled with an 8% increase for Amazon's stock over the past week are what it took to get the two billionaires to swap places.
