Things are on the move at Amazon and Jeff Bezos is going ‘upstairs’ to be the new chairman and is relinquishing his day to day duties, and he has picked a perfect time.
It has just been announced that Amazons most recent accounts show that their sales have increased by 51% – the UK sales alone are now £20 billion.
At a time when we’re now spending much more of our money on line it has been revealed that £1 in every £20 spent on line goes to Amazon. Just imagine that – it’s extraordinary.
No wonder other shop based retailers are asking for on line retailers to be taxed more, and as a human being I can’t really comprehend how large and how significant Amazon are. They didn’t even exist when I was a child and now they’re huge and Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world. Astonishing.
