Tonight I watched the news from TV and it is a little surprise for me to learn that this year the richest man in the world is Jeff Bezos. He is the founder of Amazon.com which is a very popular selling website today. Bill Gates ranks secondly this year. The technology field really creates a lot of super rich men.

I did know that. He does ruin towns when Amazon comes in and employees are not treated fairly.
Amazon effectively tries to turn humans in their warehouses into robots.

@youless I think it might be a warehouse or something. I know they were talking about Amazon being available in Australia but you've always been able to buy stuff from Amazon. I'm not sure of the details as I rarely shop online.

His mission is for Amazon to control every facet of daily life to his profit.

Tencent's Ma Hua Teng is even much more richer than Jack Ma who is the boss of Alibaba But they are not the richest men yet. Warren Buffett was the third richest man in the world.

@youless Do you have Amazon in China? Here we know Amazon but they don't operate here though Lazada dominates online shoping which owns by Alibaba.

I knew about him a bit but I did not know about him being the richest man in the World. My eldest drives for Amazon sometimes and the rates are not that brilliant and he has to use his own car also.

In fact I think Amazon in China is not so competitive to other online websites, although in the past I often buy from it but now I hardly will buy something from it.

@youless Also over here they have a bad habit of charging you twice and you have a heck of a game to get them to pay you back. They say you opted to be a Premium member even when you did nothing of the sort. As there was no receipt to say anything about Premium we got the second lot of money back but only after insisting and we stopped buying anything from them again. Its a great pity that kind of thing goes on as it would be so easy to do good business. Maybe they have pulled their socks up a bit and started to bother about customers who are always the first most important in any business.

@youless I think that they are more careful now as there have been numerous complaints about all that and rather than lose customers they are coming more into line like they should do. Good job you were careful also so as not to lose your money.

@youless Bill Gates was the richest in the past, in July 2017 Jeff Bezos surpassed Bill Gates. Nobody ever mention the richest woman in the world, she is a French woman, Liliane Bettencourt of L’Oréal.

It is certainly true that most of the richest do come from the technology sector. Bezos has no doubt built a huge empire, and Amazon way much more than just a bookstore, which is what it was when it was started. Luckily we can invest in their efforts through the stock market, and get a piece of the money. I currently own shares in Amazon.

I think they made a wrong strategy in China and therefore their selling is not as well as other online websites in my opinion.

My friend left for the United States about two years ago, and Haza Alino visited us not long ago and told us about the whole Amazon industry. It's cool. We do not have shipments to Amazon, so we enjoy the Mali Express and eBay that are still bought at Amazon.
