Video: Amazon Empire — The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos

An inside look at how Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos built one of the largest and most influential economic forces in the world — and the cost of Amazon’s convenience.

Jeff Bezos is not only the richest man in the world, he has built a business that is without precedent in the history of American capitalism. His power to shape everything from the future of work to the future of commerce to the future of technology is unrivaled. As politicians and regulators around the world start to consider the global impact of Amazon — and how to rein in Bezos’ power — FRONTLINE investigates how he executed a plan to build one of the most influential economic and cultural forces in the world.

    If you are interested in staring into the face of fascism, you should watch this show. The invasion and eventual and hoped for control of our lives with profits to Amazon/Jeff Bezos is truly frightening and the almost sociopathic way in which it is justified or dismissed by senior executives is equally terrifying. This is all about social isolation, making us fearful of the “outside” and the “others” and should not be supported.
