Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, is currently the richest man in the world, but he does not expect his businesses to last forever. Recently, in an interview with British The Guardian, he said that Amazon would certainly fail sometime.
At the last Amazon board of directors’ meeting, Jeff Bezos surprised his staff when he made a surprising prediction that his company, worth about $ 1 billion, would face one’s own death one day.
“Actually, I predicted that one day Amazon will collapse. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at big companies, their lifespan lasts 30 years and not a hundred years, “Bezos said before his employees.
Amazon’s bankruptcy topic has been updated recently, when Sears, otherwise the world’s largest online retail platform, declared bankrupt in October after failing to stand in the Amazon market competition. Bezos was concerned by the developments and decided to prepare his employees for the potential closure of the Internet giant.
“If we focus on ourselves instead of our customers, it will be the beginning of our end. We have to postpone that day as much as possible, “Bezos added.
Lately, Amazon has been very critical of the US government, which is not at all surprising given that Jeff Bezos is part owner of The Washington Post, a media that often publishes critical texts for Donald Trump.
