Does Jeff Bezos really have $130 billion? Could he actually buy something worth $130 billion?

Answers:

A million porn stars.

In reality, no. Once an insider decides to sell off shares (most of his net worth is insider shares) of a publicly traded corporation, there are official documents that need to be filed for public release, and there are limits in the various shareholder agreements about how much and how quickly things might be liquidated by officers or directors. There may even be "claw-back" provisions that would result in forfeiture of large incentives (e.g., low-priced options) upon the occurrence of specified events (such as block sales occurring without board approval).

Bottom line, the actual "liquid" amount (as in, write a check) would probably be far less than $130 bn, but certainly many billions when all is said and done.

Also, FWIW, people (and corporations) with that sort of wealth don't deal in cash more than necessary, due in part to huge losses in "float" as cash/credit transactions work through the system. For instance, if you have a billion invested at 8% APR, then there would be approximately $9,000 per hour that someone would need to account for. Multiply by 130 and you have over a million dollars accruing somewhere every hour. Even if the math is wrong, you get the idea.

Yes

He doesn't have $130 billion in cash, he owns that much of Amazon stock and other holdings. The amount he's worth is an estimate based upon the current value of his company.

When someone is that rich, the money is probably tied up in stock or something even less liquid. In the case of Amazon stock, an officer of the company is considered to have inside information, so is highly restricted as to the when and how they can sell. Most of them have a preset plan to sell, and it happens right after the company announces results. Also, if someone sells a huge block of stock (and that goes 10x for the CEO), the price of the stock tanks. That's because of supply and demand, but it also looks very bad if an executive appears to have lost confidence in the company. The $130 billion is based on the value if you or I sell 100 or 200 shares today, not the CEO liquidating all his holdings.
