Amazon’s Amenities

Amazon’s HQ2 dog and pony show is over and the winner was never in doubt. Congratulations to Jeff Bezos and his money vault.

I focused on the Long Island City part of Amazon’s reveal, and not Northern Virginia’s Crystal City because there’s like I’m a Northeast Coast Elitist, and New York City is the southernmost city where I know anything about its local politics.

The Amazon Bidding Game

The Amazon Bidding GameMayors and governors are debasing themselves and their constituents for the chance to woo Amazon’s second headquarters. Here in Boston, we already did this with GE, a failed Olympic bid, and an indy car race that no one but our Mayor wanted. Thankfully our local sports teams have fully privately funded stadiums, so we didn’t have to endure that nightmare common to other municipalities.

If you live in Boston, please vote Tito Jackson for mayor so we can stop embarrassing ourselves.

The Amazon Economy

If you enjoy my work and can afford to, please consider supporting it on Patreon.

Jeff Bezos is buying Whole Foods and now Amazon’s one step closer to becoming the kind of monopolistic mega-corporation previously only seen in the Robocop franchise.

The days of antitrust laws are long gone, but maybe one day there will be the political will to break up Bezos’ empire like Ma Bell and Standard Oil.
