    I agree with you.

    But to explain why they say this is because it looks like Amazon is a website selling every product in the world. But what is hidden is that there’s thousands of sellers that each are selling products THROUGH Amazon and it’s not just 1 person neither is it thousands all working personally for the owner of Amazon

    It’s definitely a trade off… The one hand, a few people in traditional retail will lose their jobs… On the other hand, a lot of people have a lot more buying power which will enhance their lives. Net result is that Amazon and Walmart or a benefit.

    Also, would you rather work in a department store interacting with people (and other benefits) or work in a Warehouse where you’re timed to the last second to improve efficiency.

    Let’s say they created 50,000 jobs, but destroyed another million, as in people who work in bookstores, department stores, etc. Would you still be excited about the 50,000 jobs they created?

    It clearly takes jobs from many places and concentrates them in areas where Amazon has facilities. This undermines economies in rural areas and small cities (largely inhabited by “deplorables”) since previously the “sellers” were locals who also bought local goods, and now the sellers are in major cities.

    It isn’t clear how this impacts on quality of jobs. Small businesses paid poorly, but there were many opportunities to advance. Most of the major retailers started out as small poorly paid retail operations. An argument can be made that for most Amazon workers, it is a dead end job with no hope of advancement.

    Supermarkets also squeezed out businesses. In fact, the word “sabotage’ comes from the fact that French workers tried to stop progress form changing the job market by throwing their wooden shoes (sabots) into machinery. Amazon is only another step from the famous Spiegel catalog (founded by a Jew named Joseph Spiegel ).

    BTW, Amazon is planning on opening a center in Moda’in. This will create many jobs in Israel and enable Israelis to buy on-line without having to pay shipping costs. It already has R&D centers in both Tel Aviv and Haifa which pay significantly more than the average Israeli wage.

    Its no different then when shopriteot waldbaums or grand union opened up its first stores. Lots of little grocery stores were forced to close. This is the way the world works.

    Many Heimishe Yidden sell on Amazon. Some are earning nicely, while others are struggling, as with most start-ups. But while previously, for example, a Chasidishe Yid (or Yiddene) had practically zero chances of selling glass dishes to a consumer in Boise, Idaho, now he can and does. So for us it has leveled the playing field a lot, as no one cares how you look or that you have no college degree. As long as you can deliver the goods.

    So yes, many mom and pop shops are going bust, others are wising up and selling their stuff online, while many more are starting Amazon stores.

    “The Donald is going after Amazon”
    …and wind and solar companies, and social media companies, and advanced technology companies and just about anything that reflects change. The Trumkopf has this sick and weird obsession with dying industries which are not coming back. The Wall Street journal had a great story about his yearning to bring back the world of 50 years ago where America was more “industrial”, more white, more rural, more male dominated and more Church-going. He seems to ignore the reality of a rapidly changing post-industrial society where automation and advanced information technology have forever changed the way products are produced and sold. Just like the first big shopping centers in the suburbs destroyed the old downtown retail stores, eCommerce (of which Amazon is just a small part) will destroy is destroying the big malls. Just like the big kosher supermarkets are destroying the old heimeshe stores. It is inevitable, it is good for consuemrs (more variety, lower prices, larger selection and incredible convenience. For those of you like the Trumkiopf who yearn for the “good ole day”, first of all, they weren’t so good but in any event, go to a museum.

    Amazon has gotten too big. If it went under, 566,000 employees would lose their job. It would very likely lead to an economic recession.

    If it’s to big to fail, it’s too big to exist. Amazon is too big to fail. If it fails, the economy comes down with it. It needs to be downsized.

    The media has been reporting for years that Amazon does not pay their fair share for postage. It costs the USPS per package.

    The Donald reads the news.

    The reporters don’t read their own news, and go unhinged stating this is Trumps claim.

    This is the standard operating procedure of journolists.

    thats the same as saying, maybe all website news media should be shutdown, their putting the newspapers out of business in the billions & why should anyone buy the newspaper if they can just read the news for free on the web on so many choices of websites.

    YWN is a great news website.

    If a company is too big to fail it could be split up doesn’t have to be downsized. I’m not saying this should or shouldn’t be done.
