‘The Web vs. The Force’

Great video from Scott Galloway/L2 on the state of the retail industry:

Looking back at the winners and losers of the holiday shopping season, the biggest winner was Amazon. Capturing 51 cents of every additional dollar Americans spent online this year and accounting for over half of e-commerce growth, the Seattle behemoth appears to be unstoppable.

An unlikely winner? Malls — at least high-end ones, which are flourishing. The top-rated malls of 2015 all had upscale department stores, luxury brand stores and high-tech electronics stores.

I love this show. It’s like the inverse of old-school broadcast TV: dense with information, packed into just a few minutes. Regular TV is sparse with information, spread out over 30 minutes or an hour.
