"Put the customer first, invent, be patient" sounds better than "operate at a loss while you drive brick and mortar businesses out of business, buy politicians to enact byzantine tax laws only you can afford to figure out and obey, and then own the whole global economy itself!"

What's really notable is that the interview six years ago notes his wealth as $24 billion. Today it's over $150 billion. At that rate, he could be literally a trillionaire in ten years.
He didn't get there by telling the truth!
"We are enjoined, no matter how uncomfortable it might be, to consider ourselves and our cultural institutions scientifically — not to accept uncritically whatever we’re told; to surmount as best we can our hopes, conceits, and unexamined beliefs; to view ourselves as we really are." - Carl Sagan
