New Delhi: Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, has offered some "spending" advice to customers while he issues a recessionary warning. The billionaire has warned customers to save their funds and refrain from irrational holiday spending. Given the likelihood that the economy would continue to deteriorate, Bezos advised American households against investing in expensive products like refrigerators or brand-new vehicles in an interview with CNN.
"If you're an individual consider to purchase a big-screen TV, you might want to wait, hold onto your money, and see what transpires. The same is true with a new automobile, refrigerator, or whatever else. Just remove some risk from the equation," Bezos during the interview.
