Inc.’s sudden move to abandon plans for a new campus in New York ends the protests in the city but doesn’t remove the national scrutiny being placed on the company, according to corporate reputation and management experts. “There are two very energetic forms of populism in the U.S. right now, one on the left and one on the right, and neither likes Amazon that much,” said Brayden King, professor of management at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. In the short term, experts said, Amazon likely would see little impact to its sales.
An HQ2 fiasco, a multibillion-dollar divorce -- is Amazon's armor starting to show some cracks? Politicians and activists who opposed the facility cheered Amazon's sudden exit as others bemoaned the loss of up to 25,000 jobs and associated tax revenues. "I think they got lucky, in that New York City looks so bad," said Allen Adamson, co-founder of Metaforce and a professor at NYU's Stern School of Business.
The tech giant may not be able to increase its e-commerce revenue as fast as it used to, but you'll appreciate where it is growing the fastest.
In early November, word began to leak that Amazon was serious about choosing New York to build a giant new campus. The city was eager to lure the company and its thousands of high-paying tech jobs, offering billions in tax incentives and lighting the Empire State Building in Amazon orange. Then Amazon made it official: It chose the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens to build a $2.5 billion campus that could house 25,000 workers, in addition to new offices planned for northern Virginia.

The U.S. continues to hammer China telecom Huawei Technologies.
Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos’ claim that the National Enquirer tried to blackmail him after obtaining embarrassing photos of the tycoon shocked some observers, but it might ring familiar to other celebrities who have tangled with the supermarket tabloid, including fitness guru Richard Simmons and talk-show host Dr. Phil. Mr. Bezos’ lengthy online post on Feb. 7 included threatening emails he said were from the Enquirer that are in line with the paper’s no-holds-barred approach: It sometimes gathers damaging material or claims about individuals and uses it as leverage to advance the publication’s interests, instead of printing it. In some cases, the Enquirer tries to curry favor with celebrities by acquiring the rights to a negative story about them and then burying it—a practice known as “catch and kill”—as it did in at least two instances for Donald Trump.
Amazon.com Inc. has climbed aboard the electric-vehicle bandwagon, leading a $700 million investment round for Rivian Automotive LLC, the car-making startup said Friday. Amazon has already placed bets in the area of driverless technology. Last week, the e-commerce giant announced it had invested $530 million in Aurora, an autonomous-vehicle startup run by former employees of Google’s Waymo and Tesla Inc. Early on, Aurora made deals with Volkswagen AG and Hyundai Motor Co. to install its mix of software and hardware in their vehicles.
