Amazon: hail the corporate overlord

Amazon is looking for a new home and has put the word out for the almighty “market” to provide. The tech giant has made entire cities complicit in the race to the bottom with promises of tax cuts and other financial incentives – bribes. It is not only looking for a host city, but a partner which can further its monopolistic plans. Myopic cash strapped cities are happy to oblige mistaking this extortion for opportunity.
