Episode 70: Forget ISIS. Amazon Is The (Economic) Terrorist To Fear

In Audio, Economy, Podcast, Politics by Jonathan Tasini0 Comments

ISIS poses virtually no threat to you in your home. The same can’t be said for Amazon. Amazon really is an economic terrorist. That’s what I spend most of the podcast this week digging into—after laying out the picture of the sorry spectacle of cities and states begging Amazon to locate its new headquarters in one of their communities, I turn to economic and tax experts who explain the fraudulent claims Amazon repeatedly makes about what a great job creator the company is and, then, how Amazon engages in relentless tax dodging.

I also check in with Tom Guild, a progressive Democrat running for Congress in conservative Oklahoma’s 5th District. Our Robber Baron of the week, appropriately, is Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos.
