Amazon’s ad business could grow bigger than AWS, analyst argues

Amazon Web Services (AWS) produced $19.7 billion in revenue during the company’s second quarter, the online tech giant announced as part of its earnings report on Tuesday.

And while AWS represented a significant share of Amazon (AMZN)’s overall revenue at 16.24%, one Wall Street analyst is predicting another area of ​​the business could surpass those contributions.

Cruse and Piland want to know how the property was able to get so bad.

Groups representing small business interests slammed a deal announced Wednesday by Mon. Joe Manchin, DW. Va., saying it would increase inflation and hurt employment.

The groups argued that the agreement, titled the Inflation Reduction Actwill increase pressure on small businesses that have already struggled to stay afloat amid record-high prices and slowing economic growth.

The legislation was unveiled after weeks of negotiations between Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., who said it would guarantee corporations and the wealthy “pay their fair share.”

“We all know that taxes roll downhill,” Alfredo Ortiz, president of the Job Creators Network, told FOX Business in an interview. “So, it’s either going to be an increase in cost and, ultimately, in prices to the consumer, which is inflationary, or it’s going to be a job killer.
