Bill Gates regains richest tag, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos is number 2

Bezos, a relative newcomer to the top of Forbes' list, has benefited from the seemingly boundless expansion of Amazon into new markets. That's why Amazon projected operating income in the current period ranging from a loss of US$400 million ($534m) to a gain of US$300m. As a result, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union has decided to register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission as they believe this move will result in the loss of jobs and the entire white wash of competition in the industry.

Despite the criticism and Thursday's missed expectations report, Lovallo does not think it's all likely to effect Amazon's reputation.

It's rare to see a giant company grow so quickly, and there are reasons to suspect Amazon won't soon slow down.

Amazon's subscription services revenue, mostly from Prime memberships, increased 51 per cent to US$2.17b in the second quarter.

For one, the company that made him a multi-billionaire started as an online book retailer.

The company also recently announced plans to acquire US grocer Whole Foods, which could help Amazon expand in that sector.

So much for Jeff Bezos being the richest man in the world. A cornerstone of the company's strategy, Prime encourages shoppers to buy more goods, more often from Amazon.

At the same time, Amazon is betting big on AI hardware with Bezos at the helm, as evidenced by the rollout of its digital assistant Alexa and its Echo smart home hub.

In recent years, Bezos's fortune has whizzed past that of legendary investor Warren Buffett, Spanish retail magnate Amancio Ortega and Mexican tycoon Carlos Slim.

The efforts are a celebration of Gordon-Levitt's passions, as well as the vibrancy of LG's consumer community, Lee says. Gates had a net worth of $90.8 billion as of the Wednesday close. His wealth has followed the meteoric rise of Amazon's stock. Its core e-commerce businesses lost money. The specter of Amazon's disruption now hangs over a dizzying array of industries.

Even if we're to cast doubt on the five-year forecast, the near-term growth is clear. In that case, which originally began in 1998, a judge ruled in favor of the Department of Justice that Microsoft was developing a monopoly in the web browser market and intimidating its competitors, The Times reported. The fundamentals of the retail business look horrible: Sales are stagnating and profitability is getting worse with every passing quarter.

According to which the figure of their earnings is rising from day to day.

Bezos is also thinking more about how to give back to society and even asked his Twitter followers last month for ideas. Costs for fulfillment, marketing and technology all rose.

TBR analyst, Meaghan McGrath, said accelerated AWS usage has balanced broader Amazon underachievement with growth that provokes expedited capacity expansion. The subsidiary will expand in France, Sweden and China in the near future, Olsavsky said.
