Well at one point Bezo's was just a schlub like the rest of us.
Then he got off his ass and invented Amazon.
That's what makes America amazing - unlimited potential.
1. Every Bezos needs fellow current-schlubs for a workforce, and millions more as customers. If the schlubs can't afford to be customers, or feel that Bezos isn't offering what they need, a Bezos goes back to being a schlub. If it doesn't pay to be a Bezos-schlub, people will eventually find a different Bezos to work for.
2. Unlimited potential also swings in an unfavorable direction.
