AMAZON v U.S.

A dedicated parcel delivery service should be competitive with the likes of UPS and US Express, with a true cost pricing structure. Or ( Privitize

IS AMAZON AN EVOLUTION OF RETAIL

OR RETAIL MONOPOLY

 

The US Government has suddenly become critical of Amazon Corp. “They pay no state taxes, hurting the USPS bottom lines, their deliveries by USPS use State roads, therefore should pay state taxes, they harm the competibility of local businesses.

All true, somewhat. But let’s “level the playing field.”

The USPS, (US POSTAL SERVICE), thas been continuing to lose it’s largest source of income, the letter. When is the last time you walked to your mailbox and put a letter in it? Do you even have stamps and envelopes?

With email, Skype, Duo, Social media, bill pay online, why stamp and mail anything?

 

Is Amazon causing the postal service to lose money? The USPS is required by law to not charge less than cost for delivery of parcels. But they do. Do they include overhead, infrastructure, management initiatives, and rising labor cost as every other well managed corporation does? Since it’s their greatest area of growth, then why are they losing money here?

 

Revenue from First-Class Mail and Marketing Mail decreased $309 million and $248 million, respectively, due largely to lower volumes. Revenue from the Shipping and Packages business increased $505 million, or 9.3 percent, during the quarter. (USPS)

So is Amazon to blame? Amazon uses the USPS for less than 50% of it’s shipping. The postal service’s failure to anticipate and take advantage of their changing business model is the same reason many business’ fail. Restructure your parcel delivery service, reprice, seperate it from personal and marketing letter carriers. Cut waste. Cut waste. A dedicated parcel delivery service should be competitive with the likes of UPS and US Express, with a true cost pricing structure. Or  ( Privitize by The Hill).

E-Commerce is on a roll, not just your local megastores but non-stores:

I am a retired warrior of 24 years. The new battle front for me is the corruption, loss of vision, and mission in government. Congress, intelligence agencies, FBI, FCC, and FTC. The Supreme court often fails to see the forest for the trees. The forest is true democracy, equally protected, equally represenred. Not based on wealth, power or influence, but on the individual. Rulings based on one fact or one principle are but webs of distraction, and open doors for tyranny. Through blogs, twitter, Google communities I expose, investigate, and attack the enemies of democracy, with the power of the CPU not the sword. Free Press is now a consolidated, one voice, liberal, globalistic, political propaganda tool. Until real campaign finance reform removes wealth as a force in elections, legislation, and national policy we will be a functioning oligarchy, with smoke and mirrors democracy. The media will then become free, and America’s experimental democracy may evolve. I am a voice in the media wilderness, awaken from your slumber, drop your chains, secure freedom for yourself and future generations. By James Kirk-Wiggins.
