    If you have that passion on stopping wars and providing necessities for poor countries I do think that would have a better impact to humanity.

    It wasn't "hyperbolic excitement about the internet". Instead, cheap money, aka low interest rates, had everything to do with it. Thank Greenspan for all of the misallocated capital during the 90's.

    He helps people "make a purchase decision", then when enough people make that decision, he undercuts quality products with cheap bullshit with a fifty percent failure rate.

    The challenges of growth. I ordered a $4 mouse pad for my daughter. A $60 Wagner Book showed up. I called customer support to correct the issue and the person answering the phone was rude, nasty, unhelpful etc. I sold the book for $20 and bought the mouse pad at a brick and mortar store.

    Ok, he's preaching about the consequences of over industrialization and inefficient energy usage but runs a multi-billion dollar company that runs through paper like a 9 year old kid through a bag of doritos. On top of that, he starts a space program that probably runs through fuel like a Taco truck on a friday night!!!! Yeah Ok buddy! great point.

    Well, Jeff has something to learn he does not realize that the whole space race and going to space is impossible and a lie. Let him continue down this path as Richard Branson has and has gone very quiet about his space exploit has he not after finding out the truth no less. You see the truth is in plain sight you just have to look. This also why the space shuttle missions where also stopped plus because it was getting to expensive to continue the lie.

    The best application of AI will be in diagnostic medicine against millions different ailments and diseases that docs misdiagnose and miss all together . There is a limit to brains memories of symptoms of millions of multiple complex of diseases that hit all at once . It is like a fantasy of the martial art fighter trying to take on 50 of the enemies all at once . This is my humble opinion. Mr . Bezos demonstrates " The intelligence that transcends the thought ".Rich should have a close friendships with a scientists that are not involved into "The scientific FRAUD " Quote from 60 minutes USA "The scientific FRAUD " . One of the best I have ever seen . The only suspicion about Amazon I have is mistrust in the the quality of the goods they ship . It must say where it is made .

    I saw reports of this greedy, short (5'7"), hook-nosed, penis-head paying his Amazon employees salaries
    which were equivalent to those earned by people employed at McDonald's franchises. Due to these low
    wages, Mr. Greedy's employees were entitled to Food Stamps and other forms of gov't/social assistance.
    What a guy! He is a wealthy man whom is doomed to be a "little" man (in more ways than one) until his
    death is celebrated by most of humanity. No surprise, there. After all, he resided in, and attended schools,
    located in both Texas AND Florida. Possibly the two worst States in the U.S. in almost every way
    imaginable. I feel it would be more appropriate if his surname had TWO letter 'o's in it: i.e. Bozos.

    What a difference it makes looking at making money from two different ways. He takes care of the customers to get money to get the money (money first) and Sir Richard Branson takes care of his employees first and the money comes in naturally (employees first). I wish Sir Richard would open up his own company, i'd be buying from him instead.

    Why do I import my products from China, to sell on Amazon? because here in the United States the companies do not sell to small companies, they ask you first the name of the company to give you some information about their products, then tell you that you can not buy their products, that you have to buy them 1 million annually, in China they do not ask you if you are big or small company, they don't give to F * and they fit to your budget, I tried to buy my products here in the United States and it was "impossible" for me, that's why I buy in China!!!!!!!!!!!!! in CHINA they sell quality products if you want to sell "QUALITY" what can you tell me about the big brands of electronic products like APPLE? (made in Shenzhen, China) Don't keep saying we don't want to buy the products made here in the USA !!! they do not sell them to us (I'm not Target or Walmart)

  • stochastic24

    It's surprising how weak his argument is here. First of all energy use has been increasing with global population and we are likely to reach our population cap in less than 50 years and there is no evidence that power usage will continue to grow after that. Technology is constantly being invented that reduces power usage, for example we are now using 5% the electricity for lighting that we used just 20 years ago. Also the efficiency of solar panels has been increasing steadily for 50+ years and at the current rate of improvement electricity would cost less than $0.0001 per kw/h 200 years from now.
    Just a totally mindless comment, how is this guy the richest man in the world?
    Now just after this he says we use 11,000 watts of energy. That again is just stupid. The only way you would get that number if it is even accurate is to combine the total usage of electicity and divide by the population. Does that mean if a US owned aluminum smelter is using 10MW of electricity to smelt aluminum which it sells overseas that I am using a portion of that energy? No. I average probably 300W of energy usage. My government uses maybe 100w tops average in providing services to me. Just nonsense coming out of this guys mouth.

      He only increased wages because he got caught. He only does these interviews (all of a sudden) because he got caught. The people he abuses most do not live in this country and just quitting is not an option. You sound spoon fed and as if your mind is so narrow it's constructing you blood flow.

    Here's an individual who cannot even run a good company (Amazon). I had a lot of packages sent to me and I spent a lot of time on the internet trying to sort out messes within that company. I have now begun to pay a little more and get better service. Why ? Because when you spend a lot of your time on the phone trying to fix his problems, it is not only costly financially. It becomes a big cost and a complete waste of time doing business there.
    Who is he to even to criticize anyone when he cannot even get his own act together. He cannot even run a company smoothly and yet he wants to offer the world advice. Jeff spend more time focussing on your own internal problems before you criticize others. Remember Al Capone looked successful to some others as well. What a hypocrite ! Jeff never forget the other large retailers who neglected the most important part, the customer who eventually had to close down their doors because they thought they were smarter as well. The customer is the one who keeps your doors open. They can also shut them down very fast.
