It goes without saying that a LOT of people don’t like Jeff Bezos.
Spend any time on the internet and you’ll inevitably come across people whining about him.
Then you have politicians and others who want to tax and, “Redistribute” his wealth.
(All in the name of supposed fairness and, “Justice.”)
He’s even been described as a, “Super Villain.”
But is any of this justified?
You see, here’s what these people don’t understand:
The guy is actually underpaid!
You see, Jeff Bezos directly or indirectly creates wealth for millions of people. On a basic level this includes the people who sell products through Amazon and the manufacturers of those products. Then you have the people who work for those people and the people who work for them. There is an entire industry surrounding Amazon which most people don’t realize exists. Speaking for myself I’ve written hundreds of descriptions for Amazon products and made plenty of money doing so.
The fact is that the haters are simply jealous.
Is Jeff Bezos evil?
End of lecture.
P.S. Here’s another example: people used to complain about how much Michael Jordon got paid. But what they didn’t realize is that relative to his existence he was actually one of the most underpaid players. Think about it: he created an entire industry which included shoe, ticket, food, and clothing sales plus television viewership, and much, much more – none of which he actually got paid for.
