Jeff Bezos is not worth $8,000,000 an hour, amirite?

This is complete insanity. I don't care how smart you are or how hard you work nobody is worth that kind of money.
Nobody needs one billion let alone 175 billion. You couldn't spend a billion dollars in 5 lifetimes.

This is beyond mere greed. It's a systemic flaw that has been there for 300 years.
There hasn't been a wealth gap this large since the pyramids and even the Pharaohs would be green with envy.
For 90% of the people; Capitalism is not working.
If this is the best we can do we're fukd.

He doesn't need to be "worth" it.
If his value to the profitability of a business as a CEO is deemed to be worth it, then good for him.

His company is worth that and he's the man in charge of it, so worth or not, that's part of him.

And you're only now noticing we're fucked? We live in a world that favours the rich, while screwing over the poor. That ain't new.

How many of the 1% do you think actually works? They should call capital gains what they used to call them and what they really are. Unearned income.
The people who actually work are the ones being screwed.

the pay gap comes from government regulations and taxation,

when your making billions a 90% tax still leaves you with millions, when your making 50,000 and are taxed 50% (with all the taxes not just income) you are worse off. capitalism isn;t the problem, its communists like you who get involved and put more taxes on the books more restrictions and more laws that is hurting the people. wealthy people can avoid all that with loopholes and off shore accounts, middle class people cannot. you want to help the people? get the government out of peoples lives
