JEFF BEZOS SAYS $100 BILLION ISN’T AS MUCH AS YOU THINK

Seattle, WA January 22, 2018
“People think I have all kinds of money now but the truth is I really don’t. First, unless I sell my Amazon stock I don’t actually get any money because we don’t even pay a dividend. Zero. Then when I do sell a little stock, most of that money goes to my rocket company Blue Origin. Plus my accountant says that after I pay excise tax, property tax, millionaire tax, customs tax, border tax, state tax, federal tax, sales tax, withholding, Social security, medical insurance, FICO, LICO, BICO, FOFO and LIFO there’s not much left. Plus he said that I need to pay for undercoating, rustproofing, dealer holdback and mandated insurance with a 125 billion dollar umbrella. I don’t really think I’ll be able to slow down and take a breath until I have about 10 times my current net worth or 1 trillion dollars. Of course with inflation, I’m not sure that’d even be enough.” ~~slater.comĀ©
