    What's a measly $37.5 billion dollars? Bezos is going to the Moon!

    All this proves is there's pretty much no reason that anyone needs to have this amount of wealth. Billionaires should be shamed unless they make similar pledges. You literally can give away half of your wealth and still get to live a life of maximum luxury. That extra money is just excess all while there are people that are struggling to make ends meet.

    A better option would be to just raise taxes on the rich, by a lot.

    Please quantify 'make ends meet'.

    So where's the line? What's the cutoff? At what point do people say 'I'm done being ambitious?'

    No one has to be less ambitious. These pledges are to give away their money when they die. They can be ambitious their whole life.

    you really think people like bezos are motivated by money? if they were motivated by money, they would have retired when they made a couple million.

    Exactly! 'Money' isn't a tangible thing to people like Bezos. It's a number. It's leverage. It's power.

    I have zero issues with anyone building their own empire from nothing...which is straight up what America is ALL about; it is the American Dream. Anyone can be Jeff Bezos in this country.

    At any rate, the guy committed 2B last year to charity to benefit homeless and low-income schools.

    Bezos Philanthropy.
