Lol you mind need to do finance 101. EW like most high flyers is probably leveraged up to his eyeballs. Worth is calculated on assets, not all of it is liquid. Ie if he owns 25% of a 40million company, it might seem like 10mil on paper, but if that company owes debt, or the money used to purchase those shares is borrowed, it isn't worth anything near that. Or he may have loaned money on a project, that hasn't capitalised. Very few wealthy people have 100% liquid cash in the bank.
