Jeff and Charles

One little bit jumped out at me from an interview with former Amazon exec John Rossman in today’s New York Times.  (Rossman has just written a book about what other companies can learn from Amazon.)
Amazon employees are paid relatively little. All the upside is in the stock. If the stock is flat to negative for a long period of time, that is going to make it a challenge to retain top talent. 
It never occurred to me before that you could have a Ponzi personnel strategy.  I guess you learn something new every day.
