Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon, was recently praised for taking amazon to the $1,000,000,000,000USD mark in terms of value. However, he has come in for some criticism as he has requested that all of his fortune dies along with him when he does.
“A number of large corporate CEO’s earn their money, and then decide to go all spiritual and ‘give back’. That’s not me. I wanted to be rich. Now I am rich. Why should I give it away to someone else when I’m dead?” Said Bezos in a statement.
Lobbyists from all over the World are calling for Government to intervene, but it’s not that simple.
“JB has donated a lot of money to many political campaigns. If he wants to burn $106.2bn dollars in cash, then who are we to stop him?” Said a spokesman of the GOP.
The World Health Organisation has insisted that even just 10% could save millions of people in poverty, provide shelter and food. But Bezos has no interest in helping others.
It is rumoured that when he dies, an Amazon drone costing $500,000,000 will fly his coffin over the Atlantic until it runs out of battery or range, then self-ignite along with the $106.2bn dollars in cash on a Super Yacht named “The Amazon One”.
