People don't care as long as they get their stuff cheap and fast.
Exactly. It's akin to Walmart with sweat shops in China/India making the products. Out of sight out of mind.

South Park did a good episode series on this in their latest season. Basically the Amazon warehouse people went on strike - and then everyone in town just got pissed off at the people on strike.

So Jeff Bezos only owns a 16% share of Amazon?

I was worried that she'd seize half his shares, and hand them over to a rival but it looks like a swing of 8% might not do that much.

Odd that he can control so much of the company with such a small stake in it.
I assume it's like any situation with a founder, the board is full of loyalists so actual ownership % isn't that important.

Sounds like Bezos and his wife situation was similar to mine. Lasted 26 years, but we became different persons from when we met as childhood sweethearts. Why does everybody think this is going to be adversarial?
