The $185 billion cheapskate is also the world’s biggest tax dodger.
Bezos spent more money on his new home in Beverly Hills than Amazon paid in U.S. federal income tax last year, according to a report by 400 politicians worldwide.
He is also a lousy boss. His employees have been described as slaves, who toil in dangerous working conditions, enjoy little or no pay increases, and face retaliation if they try to organize for a fair shake.
And he treats the environment like crap.
Amazon’s “carbon footprint is greater than two-thirds of the world’s countries,” the global report stated.
The company has “dodged and dismissed its debts to workers, societies and the planet,” the report said.
The 59-year-old has become even more obscenely rich since the pandemic hit, as consumers use online shopping in ever increasing numbers.

“World’s Worst Boss” on his way to becoming the first Covid-19 trillionaire
Amazon boss Jeff Bezos’ $145-billion fortune is skyrocketing as stores large and small fall victim to the coronavirus.
His mail-order business is going through the roof, making him an estimated $250,000 every 60 seconds. His net worth increased by $40-billion in the past year, more than the Gross Domestic Product of 100 countries around the world.
Meanwhile, workers in Amazon warehouses reportedly slave in sweatshops under hellish conditions.
One Amazon VP quit over the firing of executives who spoke out against working conditions, which include inadequate protection against the killer virus.
Bezos was named the “World’s Worst Boss” by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), an organization with 180 million members in 161 countries.
And here’s another thing — he was the only one of the world’s top five billionaires who refused to sign the Giving Pledge, an initiative created by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett that encourages wealthy people to donate much of their wealth.
But let’s get down to numbers.
A trillion is equal to a thousand billions or a million millions — meaningless numbers. The following graphics provide a better picture.
This is what a measly million dollars looks like in $100 bills stacked in 100 packets of $10,000 — it would easily fit into a small shopping bag.
This is what a billon dollars looks like in the same packages of $100 bills — now we’re talking a large truck.
And this is what a trillion dollars looks like in the same $100 stacks — that’d be Bezos practically invisible in the bottom left corner.
P.S. A grisly non sequitur. As a youth, when he worked on his grandparents’ ranch in Texas, Jeff Bezos castrated cattle.
In America more than 35 million people have lost their jobs since the Covid-19 outbreak. The U.S. economy faces the most disastrous crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Families have no income. They cannot feed their children or keep their homes heated. Many think the only solution is to kill themselves. Suicide prevention calls are up 40 percent in the U.S.
The food supply chain is already destroyed. Dozens of food processing plants in the U.S. have shut down, and hundreds worldwide.
The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic will see famines of Biblical proportions. Much of the world’s population will be wiped out.
BRAWLS IN GROCERY STORES
Already, shoppers fight over the shortage of supplies. There have been more than 50 food riots in dozens of countries because of empty shelves and higher food prices.
Governments will declare martial law and use food as the weapon to control a starving and rebellious population. It’s already started. Extreme measures are in place and police-state laws have been passed.
Italy has imposed a strict lockdown on its citizens, with only essential travel permitted. The Italian region of Lombardy brought in the army to help enforce the lockdown.
In Italy, 40,000 people have been charged so far with violating the lockdown. One man who disobeyed a self-isolation order faces 12 years in prison. Italy is just one example of the beginning of martial law on a global scale.
MEANWHILE, THIS BILLIONAIRE KEEPS GETTING RICHER
Amazon boss Jeff Bezos donated less than 0.1 percent of his $150-billion fortune to Feeding America, a non-profit group that operates more than 200 food pantries.
Bezos makes $230,000 every 60 seconds — his net worth increased by $35-billion in the past year, more than the GDP of nearly 100 countries around the world.
Yet he was the only one of the top five billionaires in the world who refused to sign the Giving Pledge, an initiative created by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett that encourages wealthy people to donate much of their wealth.
The billionaires keep getting richer while people around the world face death by starvation — an intolerable situation that will ignite a revolution.
