    The share of resources is decreasing year by year, and wealth is calcifying at the top which will create more income inequality and more poverty?

    Go buy some bootstraps.

      Organic means *no pesticide use.*

    • Posted by Shawn H Corey, at Reply

      GMO are invasive species. They are more tolerant to pesticides, which means more pesticides will be used on them.

      Seth N You sound mentally ill, son.
      I happen to be an architect, but your kind is always the same. You fellate corporate cheats who steal hundreds of billions of dollars every year, while trying to condemn personal welfare, where cheating sums to about 3% of the total. Get help. The rich hate you. Stop blowing them.

      Kosh 963 You see the issue only from the vantage point of a predatory capitalist, however. The goal of honorable people, if their government is reasonably honest and representative, is to pay *_their fair share of taxes,_* Only thieves and worse seek to do the minimum, and treat what is legally permissible as what defines their moral compass.

      Furthermore, Apple, Amazon, Whole Foods and the like have bought our political system. They dictate tax policy. In effect you’re saying a business can bribe and cheat to make their legal tax bill minimal, that’s all they have to or should pay, and that’s just fine.

      It isn’t fine. That you blithely treat “Business/Person” as the same as one another really does tell us everything we’d want to know about your worldview. Businesses are not people. They are not remotely the same: not morally, not socially, not as regards their obligations to other, sentient beings.

    Amazon is slowly becoming one of the biggest Monopolies America has ever seen, if we want to continue as a capitalist country we must keep them and Monsanto from buying everything on the board

    The Middle guy hit it right on the Nose!!!! Finally SOMEONE is talking is about the dangers of Monopolistic power. Combine that with Inelastic demand and markets break down.

      5:00 cooperating with other participants in a market place is the exact opposite of a competitive market, that called collusion and its why the internet companies in the US get away with their low value services.

      Price wars are a sign of a healthy economy, it’s something businesses do their best to avoid since it eats in to their margins.

      7:20 if it was an issue about monopolies the products wouldn’t cost less. Monopolies¬†INCREASE prices since their consumers don’t have anywhere else to go.

      In addition I have not seen anything that would make amazon a “monopoly”, there are countless¬†rival corporations actively competing with them in every field they go into. They are not buying up the entire food industry, but one small subsection of it.

      If you want to see a monopoly look into DeBeers or Luxottica.

    • Posted by Quentin McGuffey, at Reply

      Not just about amazon. Obviously Amazon is not operating in monopoly but it is not exactly perfect competitors either. In the case of Amazon, they are just trying to do everything like GE used to. Its not a great move for a company to do that because they cannot focus on core competencies. I liked this because of its larger point that companies like Walmart move into a region. Price all competition out of that region with a loss strategy like local smaller grocery stores, hardware stores ect. and then raise their prices. That kills jobs and leads to an inefficient market. Also it is key to notice in healthcare the behavior of drug companies that have patented protection. Monopolists tend to price lots of people out and when we whine they offer coupons. This is what happened with the epipen. it’s textbook behavior. Ok I am ranting. thank you for the comment! I do appreciate a civil argument.

    Whole Foods is for elitist snobs and faux healthy eaters. A gluten free cookie is not “health food”. I can’t afford that store. ūüćē

    There’s no science that organic is better? You should read “Silent Spring” it was written at the beginning of the organics movement. If you are antitrust then there is another reason to buy organic. Bayer the chemical, pharmaceutical giant controls way to much of the global food system.

    • Posted by Taylor Dyssegard, at Reply

      Silent spring has nothing to do with organic foods its about the devastating consequences on the life cycles of aquatic foul as a result of the persistence of chemicals such as the pesticide DDT being used to combat the mosquito epidemic of the time. maybe I’m confused

    As the gravity of the message of this video starts to hit you, stop and remember that laws were put in place to prevent the upcoming monopolistic Armageddon a very long time ago. Yet here we are. Ever wonder why Elon Musk says the government should pay everyone a wage just for being?

    Amazon is not a monopoly, they are 30% of retail sales because everyone loves them. 70% of the market is not Amazon. This is ridiculous Liberal BS. Anti-trust laws are dumb they prevented a merger of Blockbuster & Hollywood video cuz “Monopoly” when both businesses were being buried by Netflix. Destroying Amazon would be just as dumb. Monopolies in the modern world are aided by govt. how about we stop blocking competition for ISPs instead of messing up something great

    • Posted by Jonathan Marshak, at Reply

      Actual Justice Warrior anything over 25% is technically a monopoly so you’re wrong

      why would you shop at whole foods anyway? they sell asparagus water for 9 dollars. they scam rich, stupid people.

    It is amazing to me that Michael Shore says Amazon is a beautiful vision. City Centers and Main Streets all over the country have been completely destroyed. That not only means the businesses themselves disappear, but also the tax base of a municipality, and a very important shared space that gives a sense of community. …You know what, this new telecom bill against net neutrality is a beautiful vision-it gets all these kooky sites no one visits from hogging bandwidth and frees it up for sites people really want to go to…like Amazon!
