SOUR GRAPES?

Maybe. But…

86% of all billionaires are richer than a year ago. Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest person for the fourth year running, worth $177 billion, up $64 billion from a year ago as a result of surging Amazon shares.

How much money are we talking about, anyway?
A million is 1000 thousands, a billion is 1000 millions

Oh.

Is something wrong with these pictures? More wrong than sour grapes, I mean.

  • Whoever is being forced to buy things from Amazon, please raise your hand? Is system being rigged to benefit those enriching themselves off of speculation? You bet… lol Those forced to read articles, watch programs about the rich and famous or people paid to be on “reality” shows, please raise their hands too?
