You don’t understand business or economics.

That money simply has not been spent. Money Bezos could afford to pay out of his own bank account and still have $147 billion left.

You don’t even grasp how much $1 billion is. $1 billion is $1 million times 1000. Thus, if you earn $50,000 a year, you have to work 20 years to earn $1 million. At the end of that time, you would not have $1 million, you will have earned and likely spent $1 million. To earn $1 billion, you would have to work 20,000 years. That’s not a typo. Twenty thousand years. Bezos is worth $150 billion, so to earn that amount means you would have to work 300,000 years to earn that amount.

The money that did not go to Amazon, who paid $0 in taxes for another year, can be distributed in smaller amounts to numerous small local businesses and spent on municipal projects to attract other businesses who don’t need so much welfare which is taken out of citizens pockets.

Stop prostituting yourself, your country and your fellow citizens for your obscene bootlicking worship of your slave masters. Use some of your money to get an education or at least buy a book.
