Schooling Bezos: Debating with (and Giving Suggestions to) the Founder of Amazon

Phil and Stephen examine whether they agree or disagree with Jeff Bezos on some points he made in a recent talk:

6. Gawker’s opponents need a ‘thick skin’

5. Amazon Prime Video ‘helps sell more shoes’

4. Amazon isn’t trying to kill UPS

3. AI will have a massive impact on society in the next 20 years

2. Government surveillance is an ‘issue of our age’

1. Donald Trump’s attempt to freeze media critics is ‘not appropriate’

Meanwhile, our friend Will Brown has an idea for how Jeff can put us all to work.
