This week in Bezos: The return to Amazon HQ2 … again

We try to keep away, but Amazon.com Inc. CEO Jeff Bezos has a way of puling us all back in. Welcome back to another edition of our weekly newsletter, where we round up all the pertinent news chunks about the acclaimed Internet dude that some may call "Lex Luthor, but with a book fetish," soon to be head of the Kalorama Citizens Association or perhaps most likely, "King of the moon." And I promise to be your unbiased, nonpartisan guide on this Amazon-related journey. Current net worth: $145 billion Change since last week: Down $20 billion Translation: Bezos is down almost the entire market capitalization of Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HLT), so essentially he lost an entire global hotel chain in seven days.
