  1. what a great scam Amazon is. When China does what Amazon does and dumps goods without profit, its called “unfair business practices” and they get fined. Amazon gets applauded for doing the exact same thing.

  2. Owning the stock WITHOUT SELLING IT, means absolutely nothing! This fake list of the “richest” people in the world is a hoax and a fraud. A person’s wealth can only be judged by his liquid assets. Cash is king. It’s the same thing with “owning” real estate. It’s NOT liquid. I don’t care if you own 30 skyscrapers in Manhattan. You can only be gauged by what you physically have in your savings or checking account. And even that is not guaranteed. If Marshall law is put into place, banks are frozen, you have no access to your accounts, you’re a nobody. Only cash on hand is really worth something. Sure. Ask the Jews that lived in Germany when the Nazi”s yemach shimo rumbled into town.

    You are in a foreign place and you lost your credit cards. You are out of cash. You are dying of hunger. You go into a store, where no one knows you and you say, “I own a million shares of Amazon”/”I own 50 buildings on 5th Avenue” so give me a container of milk. Give me a loaf of bread, etc…They will call security and have you arrested. So “owning” anything that is not liquid means NOTHING! This article should of said, who earns the largest salary per week, in the world?
