"At 55, Bezos has never dominated a major market as thoroughly as any of
these forebears, and while he is presently the richest man on the
planet, he has less wealth than Gates did at his zenith. Yet Rockefeller
largely contented himself with oil wells, pump stations, and railcars;
Gates’s fortune depended on an operating system. The scope of the empire
the founder and CEO of Amazon has built is wider. Indeed, it is without
precedent in the long history of American capitalism."
