Unreal...can you imagine if he gave away half of what his worth is, that could help a lot of people.

He likely does give a good amount away. But it's his money, and I think what he does with it, is his business.

I just want him to pay his fair share of taxes.

My personal opinion is that he is a money hoarder. He will never ever in his lifetime spend what he has accumulated. But it is his and he can do what he wants. Hope he sleeps well at night.

Please note I said "IF" not that he should.

 

 

Post was not to spur an argument as to what someone wealthy should do with their money.

The issue of what wealthy people pay in taxes is a whole other topic.  Many pay little or nothing.  I don't know the specifics in the case with Bezos.

Point taken.  But I can think of a lot of ifs that would benefit a lot of people.

@Just Bling  No I can't because it's not my place to think how anyone else should spend his or her money. He earned it and it is his to spend however he chooses to do so.

Yes, and he now has an ex-wife who's worth 105 Billion.....and she's donating a TON of it to charity. Community property and karma!
