Who is going to buy all the things Amazon sell if people are unemploye

Who is going to buy all the things Amazon sell if people are unemployed and savings rate goes up? I guess Amazon will have one more jolt with another stimulus check. The government should cut out the middleman, aka Amazon.

Just ask my wife.
Amazon needs their asses regulated I dont care what anyone says. They depend on a churn of new employees with new backs and legs with gung ho attitudes. They have a 100% turnover rate and their injury record is horrendous. Idiots will say "if you cant handle dont work there" well apparently 100% can't handle it. They also start offering to pay you to quit after one year and you can never work there again. At the 1 year mark they consider you beating the odds for an injury and figure they can gain back the severence thru decreased claims and and a faster new body not beat up. One of the countries largest employers and look how they are. It is not a career choice for most. Other employers look up to them and think they need to be just like them. How nice. No need to ship work to China it's here. And to top it all off they try to replace humans with robots every given chance. If you're not a supporter of socialism and UBI then you shouldn't be a supporter of Amazon, among other reasons. The wife has cut down on crap from there, I've never bought a single thing knowingly and never will. Occasionally I fall for the crap they list on ebay that comes from amazon.

I slowed my Amazon purchases because they never made it to my house. It wasn't porch pirates stealing my stuff, it was highway bandits or warehouse pirates because it seems every other package got "lost" in transit. The last straw was when a nice ups lady dropped a package that clearly had been slit open, contents removed and she knowingly dropped the empty envelop package. WTF?

I decided to try Ali Express (direct from China) and it was the same thing...packages never arrived.

I have since discovered Instacart - I can order stuff from Costco or other local retailers without having to set foot in the store. So far it has worked great and probably the only real competition for amazon.

The merchandise from Amazon is cheap but it is hit or miss. I guess the bad stuff it is the cost of getting good stuff cheap from Amazon. Sometimes missing parts but not cause of stealing but incompetence. Also half of food products sold through Amazon are out of date when received. LOL. Amazon is way ahead but I sure that they can be beaten on quality

The ones that need regulation are really the Muppets i.e. the masses that continue to buy from Amazon.

Also people have no money? How do you explain the increase in number of iPhones bought? iPhone sales were flat for a number of quarters. A pandemic happened and suddenly the number of iPhones sold increased by 8%.

Muppets have tons of money. No more stimulus.
