(Bloomberg) -- Jeff Bezos sold about $2.5 billion of Amazon.com Inc. stock, his first big disposal this year after offloading more than $10 billion worth of shares in 2020.Bezos sold around 739,000 shares this week under a pre-arranged trading plan, according to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings. He plans to sell as many as 2 million shares, according to a separate filing.The world’s richest person continues to hold more than 10% of Amazon.com, the primary source of his $191.3 billion fortune, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. In the 15 years after Amazon.com went public in 1997, Bezos sold about a fifth of the online retailer for roughly $2 billion. The value of his stake has ballooned in recent years to such an extent that he can now sell relatively small amounts for billions of dollars.Amazon stock is little changed this year after rallying 76% in 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic kept people away from physical stores and encouraged online shopping.The Amazon founder has used stock sales to fund rocket company Blue Origin, while he’s committed $10 billion to the “Bezos Earth Fund” to help counter the effects of climate change.The rocket maker said Wednesday it has set July 20 for its first mission carrying people to space and plans to auction off one seat on its New Shepard rocket.Bezos would be far richer if it weren’t for his divorce from MacKenzie Scott. She received a 4% stake in Amazon as part of the split and quickly became one of the world’s most important philanthropists.(Updates with Blue Origin plans in seventh paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Democrats are revising key sections of their sweeping legislation to overhaul U.S. elections, hoping to address concerns raised by state and local election officials even as they face daunting odds of passing the bill through Congress. The changes would give states more time and flexibility to put new federal requirements in place after some election officials complained that the proposed timelines were burdensome. The tweaks are a small step forward for Democrats, who have said the legislation is a top priority while they hold Congress and the presidency.

Juventus, Milan, Real Madrid e Barcellona rischiano l'esclusione dalle coppe europee per 2 anni. E' la sanzione che la Uefa potrebbe comminare alle società che ancora non hanno formalizzato l'addio alla Superlega. Lo afferma il network Espn, facendo riferimento a informazioni fornite da diverse fonti. Negli ultimi 10 giorni, la Uefa ha avuto contatti con le 12 società che hanno varato il progetto, tramontato -almeno per ora- nel giro di sole 48 ore. La Uefa avrebbe raggiunto una sostanziale intesa con Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United e Tottenham Hotspur. L'Inter, dice Espn, è vicina ad un accordo. Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcellona e Milan a quanto pare non avrebbero compiuto passi indietro. Secondo Espn, la Uefa potrebbe adottare sanzioni in base all'articolo 51 degli statuti che impedisce l'adesione a organismi senza il via libero della confederazione continentale. Le società farebbero invece affidamente sui documenti stilati all'inizio del progetto con la richiesta di "autorizzazione" per l'organizzazione della competizione e di un "riconoscimento" da parte delle autorità calcistiche internazionali. Inoltre, eventuali azioni disciplinari della Uefa -secondo Espn- potrebbero entrare in collisione con la sentenza preliminare con cui il tribunale di Madrid esclude, per Uefa e Fifa, la possibilità di bloccare il lancio della Superlega. Le stesse fonti, riferisce Espn, precisano che il progetto Superlega verrebbe formalmente azzerato dalla rinuncia di 9 dei 12 club fondatori: al momento, però, la retromarcia è stata compiuta solo da 8 società.

More than 186,000 restaurants flooded the federal government with applications for money in the first two days of a program set up to ameliorate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the White House said Wednesday. President Joe Biden touted the high interest in the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, launched on Monday as part of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package he signed into law nearly two months ago, as an industry group warned the fund's popularity could cause it to quickly exhaust its $28.6 billion in funding. "Whether it's our economy or our sense of community, we're relying on restaurants to play a big role in our recovery," Biden said at the White House Wednesday afternoon.
