It seems like a simple formula. Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon , has a net worth of $165.6 billion. According to a 2008 estimate by Jacques Diouf, head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, it would cost $30 billion a year to end world hunger. Therefore, Jeff Bezos could objective world hunger for a year and still be the richest person in the world. In fact, given that cost would probably go down over day, Bezos could probably end world hunger for the foreseeable future and still be a billionaire.

That’s the premise behind the new Twitter account with the display name,” Has Jeff Bezos Decided To End World Hunger ?

The account @HasBezosDecided has only been active since July 21 but has already gained over 25,000 adherents. It features a lot of memes about Bezos choosing not to end world hunger.

But there’s a fair sum of economic theory as well. The current pinned tweet is a thread containing a simple explanation of the well known ” profit is theft ” concept.
