Perspective: This newspaper is owned by the richest man in history.

Correction: At $110b Bezos isn’t the richest man in history; that would be Mansa Musa, at an estimated $131b in today’s money, who has a personal net worth of $0 today.

I trust you agree my point still stands.

If Mansa Musa had owned a newspaper in 14th century and that newspaper had put out an opinion column called "here's why it would be bad for you to take Mansa Musa's gold to pay for everyone's basic needs" I think everyone would be well justified in going "lol ok sure Mansa Musa."
