According to the Progressive Policy Institute, Amazon is number one in the United States. The amount invested in logistics, green infrastructure and technology centers by 2020 was nearly US $ 34 billion.
Amazon is once again one of America’s best investors: the online company is once again topping the Progressive Policy Institute’s (PPI) “Investment Heroes” rankings this year. The company has invested in logistics infrastructure, green infrastructure, new retail options and technology centers.
In the top 3 are Amazon, Verizon and AT&T
Amazon tops the list with $ 33.8 billion in investments, up 75 percent from 2019. Verizon Communications came in second with $ 16.1 billion. Third is AT&T (6 15.6 billion), followed by Alphabet (14 billion) and Intel (.5 12.5 billion). The top 25 newcomers include Lumen Technologies, Disney and Groger.
“We see that Amazon has historically had the highest investment performance. The company’s $ 45.7 billion in global capital expenditure is still higher than peak investments from industrial companies such as General Motors, General Electric and IBM, even after adjusting for inflation.” According to the PPI. “Recently, we’ve seen that even big investment companies like Amazon can be great job creators. In particular, the cost of automating Amazon fulfillment centers has increased productivity and allowed the company to pay a minimum wage of $ 15 per hour, which is advertised in many parts of the country at $ 15 to $ 17. Entry level is comparable to wages. “
