Amazon Corporation and Jeff Bezos

Is Amazon Really a Corporate Citizen? Or Does Jeff Bezos Stand to Gain Financially From His Relationship With Amazon?

There’s been much talk in the media recently about Jeff Bezos and Amazon. The question here is: Is Amazon really a corporate citizen, or does Jeff Bezos stand to gain financially from his relationship with Amazon?

I believe that we ought to look closely at the situation with Amazon and its founder and ask ourselves if this might impact his behavior in the future. Are we to assume that Jeff Bezos has complete control over his corporation, as does a CEO of any major corporation?

In my opinion, it would appear that Jeff Bezos does not have complete control over Amazon, because it is not his own company, but rather a public corporation that he is a large shareholder in. Now it may be argued that this is just simply a publicity stunt, or perhaps a clever ploy to make the public think about the different aspects of the company.

Jeff Bezos certainly seems to enjoy the limelight these days. But I believe that he is not truly thinking about what would happen to him personally, and the financial ramifications of his actions. The question now is: What will happen to Amazon, if it were to become his own personal FMB (For-Profit-Matter) corporation?

The large number of his shareholders and board members are also not his personal personnel. These are those that help to select his executive management team, as well as help him develop his business strategy. Indeed, if this were truly the case, it would be surprising to me if he never had any direct contact with them, and yet they all have more influence than he has.

I believe that we ought to consider some of the actions that the CEO of a publicly traded corporation would take with respect to any partnership that they were involved in. And, of course, in this case, the CEO of Amazon would be held to a higher standard than a C-Suite type of CEO.

Should Amazon consider all of this and decide to “sell out” to Jeff Bezos for a handsome profit? Would it be better for their business, to partner with this entrepreneur rather than remain independent, free to grow their own business, and to compete against the corporate giants?

The future of Amazon and Jeff Bezos seems to be set up to be a dynamic and intriguing situation, that only time can answer. I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
