Thank god amazon turned down the offer, that probably would have put smaller towns under too much pressure to make up for lost taxes, every time they hand these things out the taxpayers pick up the lost revenue

Apr 4, 2017 - Amazon is worth more than $430 billion. That's nearly twice the market value of its rival Walmart (WMT), which has a market cap of a mere $220 billion. Only Apple (AAPL), Google owner Alphabet (GOOGL) and Microsoft (MSFT) are worth more than Amazon.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has a personal worth of some $100 billion.


WELFARE FOR BILLIONAIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
