    interessante parallellismo, perché, come diceva Mark Twain, la storia non si ripete ma fa rima..

    su AmazNO lo stiamo dicendo da un po, piano piano ci arrivano tutti, piano piano il terreno eroso sará anche quello dei nostri orticelli..spero non si debba arrivare fino a quel punto prima di aprire gli occhi.

    Ho estratto un passaggio saliente per voi, l articolo completo allegato : (…) The other big winner has been the giants of online retail – such as Amazon, who run a “Prime Pantry” service in the US, India and many European countries. High street shops have been suffering from price and convenience competition from the internet for years, and bankruptcies are regular news. Now, much “non-essential” retail space is closed, and our desires have been re-rerouted through Amazon, eBay, Argos, Screwfix and others. There has been a clear spike in online shopping, and retail analysts are wondering whether this is a decisive move into the virtual world, and the further dominance of big corporations.
    Small business has taken a really decisive hit across a wide range of sectors as Covid-19, like the Black Death, results in big companies gaining market share…

    La notizia delle ultime ore sta facendo preoccupare più di qualcuno, e tra questi faresti meglio ad esserci anche tu….

    Something to think about: Former NSA chief Keith Alexander has joined Amazon’s board of directors. Alexander was the public face of US surveillance during the Snowden leaks..

    “Amazon ha distorto illegalmente il mercato delle vendite online” .
    Qui su AmazNO ve lo stiamo dicendo da tempo, e ora la Commissione europea ha messo formalmente sotto accusa Amazon per l’utilizzo improprio dei dati aziendali non pubblici dei venditori indipendenti, una pratica con cui creerebbe un vantaggio per le proprie attività di vendita al dettaglio (tradotto, = promuovere i prodotti a brand Amazon al posto di quelli dei venditori indipendenti, spesso con dumping di prezzo, una volta raccolti tutti i dati sul piccolo fornitore questo viene bypassato), chiaro il concetto?

    L’ agency review team di Biden é pronto. É un team fondamentale per il disegno politico della nuova amministrazione. Sapete cos’é? E sapete chi c’é? Perché non é che le cose succedono a caso..
    Agency review teams do just that: they review federal agencies, facilitate a smooth transition, and eventually recommend policy reforms or proposals for the incoming administration.
    The Biden-Harris team’s picks include executives at notoriously badly-behaving companies, such as Uber and Amazon.
    Tom Sullivan (State): Tom Sullivan is a member of Amazon’s public policy (“lobbying”) team, focused particularly on Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. For years, Amazon’s lobbying efforts have managed to shield it from regulatory scrutiny…Surely Tom will do a great job in his new position 🙂

    La fine dell anno si avvicina e personalmente é sempre un momento un pó intimo di concentrazione e anche di riflessione, sull anno che é stato e su quello che verrá.
    Diceva Aristotele che l’apatia e la tolleranza sono le ultime virtú di una civiltá morente (virtú del fallimento, del regresso ndr). E forse aveva ragione.
    Ecco allora il mio augurio di cuore: che il 2021 porti a tanti, se non a tutti, la forza di alzare la testa, di aprire la bocca, di scrollarsi di dosso l apatia e smettere di tollerare ció che non va. Sarebbe di certo un anno migliore quello che verrá.
    Buon Feste a voi e ai vostri cari.

    The Gamestop novel these days is all over the place.

    Rather than going through the technical aspects of this massive short squeeze, there is plenty to read about on the web, I’d rather draw the attention on the dynamics of what happened and the roles of players involved. Because this thing is HUGE.

    It is to everyone knowledge that since nearly forever the financial market has been ruled by, played, or rigged if you wish, by the big institutions, banks, hedge funds and the likes that leveraged information asymmetry and disproportionate technical power big time, more often than not at retails’ expenses.

    Then, the unthinkable happened.

    A handful of daytraders found a glitch in the financial system, started to gather together and act together like ants.

    Impact was MASSIVE and is under everyone eyes: in less than a week some established Titans in wall street got monkey-hammered like baby seals, beaten at their own game, in their own battlefield.
    These giants lost billions, some of them got kind of bailed out, others capitulated. A bit of wealth was somehow redistributed.

    We don’t know how this will end.

    What we do know is that what’s happening with GME will surely make history, and can be replicated in pretty much every field of our life, not just in the financial market.

    What’s happening should be an eye opener for everyone, and remind us that concerted initiative from the bottom up is still a viable option for change, possibly the only one even in these times of isolation.

    We are not alone, and by acting together we can make whatever change we believe in.

    Wishing you some time to think about it.

    Thanks for reading, thanks for sharing.
