And if Amazon and the GAFA disappeared waters United States? This is one of the key proposals of the Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren: “These companies have too much power over our economy, our society and our democracy,” she said in March 2019.

In France alone, Amazon has 6.6 billion euros in revenue in 2018 and 21 million customers. Jeff Bezos would be the richest man in the world with all his activities.

GAFA as a whole is worth $ 3,360 billion and generates $ 600 billion in sales.
