Amazon: an objective case study (presentation to London Book Fair 2015

10 526 vues

Publié le

Is Amazon going to take over the world of books? These slides illustrated my talk to the London Book Fair, April 2015, to look at
• whether Amazon is the cause of bookshops closing
• whether Amazon's media sales will keep expanding forever
• if e-readers and ebooks will take over the market
• what's happening to sales of Amazon's own hardware
• the financial questions (not tax) about its business
