What is essential to one may be unessential to another.
If they’re afraid of a little competition, perhaps they need it. That’s a major part of capitalism after all. It helps determine the proper equilibrium for supply and demand
It isn’t fear on their part, it’s you not seeing the outcome of your choice. YOU…are hurting our economy by your choices…period.
Your choice is to make one man rich and further the economic division with in our country. Now think about that?
texas leading the way in action!
Psst - there’s a lot more than one man working at Amazon
It’s a waste of time. Just remember this exchange.
The only reason Amazon is a “threat” is due to the laws that corporate America successfully passed over the last 30+ years, The rules are the problem.
Change the rules, to change the behavior.
You could be right and thanks. What my problem is, is looking at the horizon of that choice and how blind that person was in not seeing that obvious outcome. Who is the richest man in the world…and how long has Amazon been profitable?
Again, whether it be Bezos, or Gates, or Soros, or Cuban…etc…
The rules encourage the game to be played as it is now.
Tax rates, stock options, regulations, mergers, equity firms, and other factors has created this economic atmosphere, It was not an accident.
Sanders is right, there needs to be an economic revolution, must like there was in the 1930’s…if we want to have any kind of a fair and balanced economy.
This pandemic is shining a bright light on the fragility of our “most successful” economy.
Originally is was to be a short time, NOT to get rid of the virus, they knew it could not. Now it’s what, months? Baloney!
That is the leftist state universal healthcare model
Shopping on Amazon isn’t hurting our economy, or “furthering economic division”.
I dont think you’re quite grasping how capitalism works.
Socialism is not fair or balanced. It is economic doom however.
Democratic capitalism works quite well.
Granted less billionaires, but more people doing well. With a solid safety net, access to health care and college or job training, w/out going into massive debt, or going bankrupt.
Sounds horrible doesn’t it?
I would agree 100% if it wasn’t for groups like the I.M.F. who’s whole job it is for stabilizing and analyzing global markets from 189 countries releasing things like this.
It’s hard for me to dismiss this as a meh. Don’t get me wrong I hope they are completely wrong but what if there not? We’re ■■■■■■
Yes. Socialism always makes promises it can’t keep & just ends up getting extreme power for a few. With the amount of socialism we now have, it’s unsustainable. Of course the left wants to spend more. More, more, more, forever, they have a black hole that is never full, & never, ever, enough. Ever.
I hope they are wrong too, mercy…
Thats disgusting and low grade.
Is this a ■■■■■■■ joke? What’s your opinion on people dying if we lift the lockdown again?
The opposite of corporatism is not socialism.
