It’s why Amazon gets tax breaks - something journalists fail to point out when they claim that Amazon doesn’t pay its fair share of taxes - US tax code incentivizes R&D and infrastructure spending; Amazon’s massive R&D spending also creates lots of good paying jobs across the 🌎

This video also shows why Amazon may beat everyone to the “flying car” - it’s often the left field players that disrupt incumbents (Apple came up with the iPhone, AT&T, Blackberry couldn’t; Tesla came up with high performance electric car, BMW couldn’t)

So not only did Bezos’ give the most to charity last year (more than any person on the planet), Amazon also invested the most in R&D (which leads to jobs being created across multiple industry sectors, including lots of blue collar jobs) in the US.
