Net Worth does not translate into actual available currency. He doesn't literally have a bank account of 23 billion dollars. If he were to sell off all his holdings that account for the 23 billion he would likely not receive that amount. Not to mention it is the Thomson family that is worth 23 billion, his brother and sisters included, and I am not certain how the value is divided among them.
