Retail Apocalypse

What makes Amazon such a lethal monster is its mastery of logistics and multiple streams of revenue.  It’s 2017 earnings were a whopping $178 billion.  In 2016 it earned $15 billion from its web services which accounted for 89% of its operating income.   Amazon earned an additional $2.8 billion from its 2017 advertising services. Its advertising revenues are expected to pop to $4.5 billion in 2018.  The monster has many heads and all the heads are growing.

The Washington Post calls it the Retail Apocalypse.
