AA in the retail world, their checklist of “winner takes it all”

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?”
