Report from the skies

You’ve heard of Amazon and maybe Alibaba as we’ve discussed. But did you know that if you add transactions they process to their GAAP revenue, they account for over $1 trillion, $1 trillion in global sales, and are sometimes growing at 50% a year? Did you know that both companies have or control airlines in multiple countries? Fascinating. Check out Cargo Facts once in a while and enjoy a world that is probably currently invisible to you. BTW, we’re on a domestic American flight now, and, unlike the flight we took Monday whose previous stage was SYD LAX, the current domestic flight dares not show the Blazing Saddles that the international flights do. If it did, the snowflakes would melt and there would be 24 / 7 protests calling for the firing of the CEO. Safe travels!
