A Black Friday 2022 is distorted in periodicity. That is, we observe a dilution of the concept over two or more weeks of moderate discounts, rather than one day, a Friday, with properly noteworthy discounts. Who says so is the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezosalso leaving other recommendations to consumers.
It was during an interview with CNN that the American tycoon and one of the richest men in the world advised consumers not to spend money on Black Friday. Remember, by the way, that this year “D-day” is the next 25th of November, Black Friday itself.

Like “Christmas” at the beginning of November, Black Friday has also been diluted since the beginning of the month. However, for the father of Amazon, the advice for small businesses and consumers in general is simpler. Do not buy, have some reserve for emergencies and other unforeseen circumstances.
That is, despite looking like good deals, the discount season is so extended and stretched for weeks that good opportunities are scarce. Therefore, and also considering the current conjecture of global inflation, Bezos advises consumers to refrain from non-essential purchases.
The Amazon founder was particularly clear during the interview with CNN. Despite being the iconic figure of the biggest e-commerce platform, his advice was one of restraint. According to Jeff Bezos, “if we are not currently in a recession, it is likely to be a matter of time before we fall into a new recessionary spiral”.
Therefore, as a businessman, his advice is to “keep a reserve of funds” and, in addition, “avoid buying very expensive products”, placing the emphasis on savings.
Current pre-recession economic situation worries Amazon founder
“What I can tell you is that the economy doesn’t look very good right now. Take some risk off the table… keep some dry gunpowder on hand. If you’re thinking about buying a big screen TV, you better rethink that purchase. better is to take that money and wait, see what happens…”
Like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter, shared a similar fear of the world economy. At the same time, we see Mark Zuckerberg’s company laying off another 10,000 workers, Microsoft freezing hiring, among other technology companies following the same path.
In short, be careful with your investments, or rather with the tempting Black Friday expenses that, incidentally, are already in effect in the largest online store in the world.
