    It is always good to hear other people's experience when comes to feeding our minds with new ways of thinking. Thanks for the real talk Jeff

    Why don't spacex and blue origin team up to reach the same goal faster? I think because competition drives innovation.

      Musk and Bezos have somewhat of a bad blood. I read it on Musk's biography and iirc it was because Origin always tries to steal their employees

    Amazon has done a ton of good for the world. But what about the medieval work conditions at their distribution facilities,like Chattanooga, TN? What about people getting fired for having to go pee while packing your product? What about having to do job tasks off the clock?

    Anyone who focused on Jeff's voice, his so called robotic movements or whatever ... ask yourself WHY you are not successful as he is. You look at negativity to inflate your own self-worth. Pay attention to the message. This is a MULTI - BILLION dollar man talking. Great insight into Amazon's early startup.

    DE: you are absolutely right his business model is DISGUSTING!zero hour contracts, but even so never sticking to rotas, calling in/ laying off poor workers at a whim. I'm aware of a number of Enfield workers told to go home on a Thursday cancelled on a Friday ('u working too many hours")despite being rotad On Saturday told to work in the morning an extra 3 hours till 2300 and then on that shift told to work from0830 the next day Sunday. And it's all considered normal The social cost on poor families life is incredible. Most restaurants don't manage like him. Whatever this idiot says about Entrepreneurship he is no staff manager and I can't understand why people can't see thru this mans crap(unless you are slaves to the £ at all costs.And I am no Liberal just a close observer) And who is he putting out on the streets - just lowly paid shop workers by using working practices most civilised businesses with a history wouldn't want to use . Amazon after all is a shop without a shop for computer users and nothing unique save for its original funding opportunity by being first . If this is setting high standards and the future I believe civilization is on its way into hell. Hopefully like victorian working practices legislation will see the light to limit it

    when i listen to this, i think bezos is the greatest PR person to grow his company. however, or perhaps in addition to that, everyone knows that the amazon culture is 'dog eat dog'. it's a terrible place to work, and they have a computer program for who managers should fire regularly to keep up 'productivity'. maybe that's the kind of work environment that keeps a business able to focus on 'the customer'. it sure isn't a pleasant place to work.

      Yes, a great guy, s owner of WashPost and Amazon he has signed a $700 million contract with the CIA, he meets regularly with intel agencies and the pentagon, and shortly after Amazon creates the most popular wiretapping device (aka 'Alexa') AND the WashPost pushes propaganda tirelessly to manufacture consent for the interests of the corporate-intel-military war profiteering industry; Pays no taxes; Employs the most exploitative brutal working conditions in his warehouses; Kills off all small independent businesses that might pose a threat. And so on and on and on...

      Obviously a great American Hero worthy of praise at the George W. Bush Presidential Center!!

    Jeff is the kind of guy that sleeps very few hours a day, you can tell by looking at his eyes or listening to his speaking rhythm. I admire him and respect him a lot, there's no doubt about his greatness. But I'm not sure if it's worthy paying the price with your own health. I do appreciate it a lot, thanks to people like him the world is a better place. But I don't like the idea of a person creating such a huge value to the world takes not taking enough care about his own health.

      I've been with Amazon almost 8 years and I have no issue at all. I'm in AZ when summers are 120 degrees sometimes and we are working in trucks. We have what's called a heat index if its outside of the index we dont work in it until its cooled down. We are given free water and electrolytes every summer. We are given free coffee and hot chocolate during the winter.

    Concerning this all media age in which we now dwell, there’s
    a 75% chance of one being recorded walking to, running from, or even engaging
    in criminal activity, and yet it has seemingly not curtailed such tasks, simply
    because the criminal element in our society has never been known to harbor any great
    intelligence, is why they had to bend toward crime in the first place. Now,
    many are trafficking in hacked written material, compromising private photos
    and the like, as Mr. Bezos has demonstrated, go ahead, do your worse, everyone
    will then be able to see your dirty hands and deeds in the light of day, if you
    can stand the heat, so will I, rending the now hacked material… worthless,
    reduced as if idle gossip in the territory of bad taste…

      America has more problems with obesity than starving poor. Most hunger is the result of communist regimes or other forms of government repression of commerce. Food shortages aren't really a thing with a free economy. Do you want Bezos to sponsor military expeditions, or to take on international politics? Which poor people in particular did you mean?

    An amazing CEO. Capitalism has allowed Bezos and Musk the opportunity to trailblaze travel and accessibility to the ordinary Man and Woman ( in the near future) to outer space. A world with 1000 Einstein’s and 1000 Mozart’s would be an amazing place to live no doubt. Hopefully we really start to take serious though the major issue that we currently have on Earth with global warming and pollution which makes its way back into the food chain.
