Письмо CEO "then-new U.S. Supreme Court ruling [that] online retailers dont have to collect sales taxes in states where they lack a physical presence" "You can do the math 15 different ways, and every time the math tells you that you shouldn’t lower prices because you’re going to make less money. That’s undoubtedly true in the current quarter, in the current year. But it’s probably not true over a 10-year period, when the benefit is going to increase the frequency with which your customers shop with you, the fraction of their purchases they do with you as opposed to other places. Their overall satisfaction is going to go up." Bezos indicated that he founded the space company to help enable "anybody to go into space"Jeffrey P.
