Amazon founder Bezos is no longer the richest man in the world

Jeff Bezos slipped in his climb to become the richest person in the world when Amazon.com Inc. fell more than 3 percent Friday, sapping $2.6 billion from his net worth.

Bill Gates remains at the top of the ranking with Spanish retailing magnate Amancio Ortega at No. 2.
