Re: Trump was accurate and some people don't like it
This story is a typical political attack on Trump for stating the truth about Amazon who has many issues not the least of which is listing merchandise as "IN STOCK" when they in fact do not have the merchandise available to ship to consumers.
Which is nothing to do with what Trump said, but whatever.
Then they string the customer along for weeks until the customer finally cancels the order
In which case they get no money. Your point?
Another wonderful treat when dealing with Amazon is that they use low cost delivery services that are unregulated and IME completely unreliable. As a result they show up at a business before 8:00 am to deliver a package and then do the same day after day after day and return the package as undeliverable because they can't read the hours of operation on the front door.
Another way of cheating themselves out of revenue. If this is a common problem, it's a self-correcting one because Amazon will shortly go bankrupt. What's the problem?
In regards to Trumps statements on Amazon he is correct they pay little local taxes compared to what local businesses pay.
I'll type this slowly so you can understand it:
Whenever someone makes an industry more efficient, that means its expenses go down. And then the taxes it pays on those expenses also go down.
When Henry Ford introduced the $100 car, the tax he paid per car was a lot lower than the tax paid by his rivals who were still charging $1000 per car. This is efficiency, it's a good thing. The alternative is sheer waste. If you want to embrace that - well, that's the mistake Britain made in the 1960s/70s, or the communist bloc for its whole lifetime.
Amazon is actually overwhelming the poorly run U.S. Postal service adding to financial losses and poor customer mail service.
So which is it, should Amazon use the "poorly run" USPS or should it use "low cost delivery services that are unregulated"? You can't have it both ways. If delivery is such an issue for you, then pay for the delivery option you do want. Or, and here's a thought, do your shopping elsewhere.
