Two As, aka Amazon and Alibaba, dominate the global e-commerce and very likely dominate the whole retail space in the near future.
So what are those common items on Amazon and Alibaba’s checklist of “winner takes it all”:
- Becomes one of the most valuable companies in the world
- Monopoly, monopoly, monopoly…accounts for at least 50% of the retail e-commerce market share in each country
- Invent the biggest shopping holiday
- Huge appetite for global expansion: Amazon prefers fully in control while Alibaba acts as the minority stakeholder
So the rest can only beg the question “are there any leftovers for us?”
