....and when your 14 year old son whips your phone and pops down to store, picks up a bottle of whisky, who will be held to blame when he's picked up by the police?

They will make it work and all the other retailers will follow,not if but when, no sick pay, no wages, no benefits, no holidays or bank holidays, no pensions, just lovely profits. And the only party talking about introducing a basic income for all, the Green Party.

Welcome to the world of the Post-Industrial man.

Loads of leisure time, no jobs and a shorter life span than they keep promising us except for the elite who will enjoy hunting trips on the land we now call our communities while the few 'slaves' that are left will be living and working above the Tesco/Booker convenience stores that they call home.

Quite a pessimistic view but hard to argue with I suppose. The problem is nobody anywhere seems to be addressing the fact that we will end up with a large, unemployable, proportion of the populace due to the fact that they will not have the skills any remaining jobs will require.

Should Tesco fear Amazon?

Quote
It also doesn’t need to cut a swathe through the sector to be successful, as it did with books. With the right business model, Amazon could still pose a significant threat, in much the same way as Aldi and Lidl have in the UK – only don’t expect it to take it 20 years and a global financial crisis to do so.

I’m not sure if T could apply the basic approach Amazon were reported to have not so long ago, with the city and shareholders to please.
I secretly wish they could, they reinvest heavily in the business, from what I understood Amazon are not compelled to turn a significant profit just remain profitable and avoid a deficit.  The less profit made the less the tax bill.  Reinvesting in operating and the technology to make the shopping trip as simple as it can be, which elevates loss due to theft, isn’t a bad idea. Is it ?
My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.
