Jeff Bezos Shares Old Article That Claims Amazon Will Fail, Elon Musk Replies

Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos posted an old article that predicted that Amazon would fail and Elon Musk replied to Bezos’ tweet.

Barron’s, an American weekly magazine/newspaper had predicted Amazon’s failure in 1999. They wrote that Jeff’s new business paradigm was silly and called him just another middleman.

Moreover, the magazine said that Amazon’s stock price would plunge and the real winners of the Net would be firms that sell their own products directly to consumers. They said that Sony, Dell, and Bertelsmann are some examples.

However, their prediction turned out be false. Amazon became one of the most influential economic and cultural forces in the world as well as the world’s most valuable brand.

Netflix co-CEO, Reed Hastings also wrote in the comments section of Bezos’s tweet to congratulate him for Amazon’s success.
