Since the beginning of 2018 I’ve been collecting quotes, articles and reports from many tweeps and organisations like BBH Labs, the IPA and Thinkbox, who — to me — are an invaluable goldmine of information. Here’s a list of most of what I found useful.

Seven of the top 10 selling vehicles in the U.S. this year are light trucks, vs. six in the top 10 in all of 2017.

Car manufacturers that took advantage of near-zero benchmark rates to cheaply lure buyers into showrooms now have to look to other tools in their battle for market share.

Germany Acts to Tame Facebook, Learning From Its Own History of Hate - The New York Times
As the world confronts these rising forces, Europe, and Germany in particular, have emerged as the de facto regulators of the industry, exerting influence beyond their own borders. Berlin’s digital crackdown on hate speech, which took effect on Jan. 1, is being closely watched by other countries. And German officials are playing a major role behind one of Europe’s most aggressive moves to rein in technology companies, strict data privacy rules that take effect across the European Union on May 25 and are prompting global changes.

Amazon's Mechanical Turk has Reinvented Research | JSTOR Daily
Turkers—and the larger online survey ecosystem of which they are a part—have helped address several methodological problems that have long bedevilled academic researchers. First, online survey respondents give academic researchers an alternative to the tried-and-tired practice of treating undergraduates as guinea pigs. As psychology scholars Michael Buhrmester et al. note in their 2011 assessment of Mechanical Turk data, “[c]ommentators have long lamented the heavy reliance on American college samples in the field of psychology and more generally those from a small sector of humanity.”

Car dealer business model is changing
All of the objectives sound pretty good. So what's wrong with running a store this way?

Well, No. 1, all those little tasks add up to about 150 work hours a week — and auto retailers have a few other things to tend to.

But No. 2, they're simply somebody else's objectives, reducing a store owner to the role of a general manager working for a demanding proprietor.

That business model differs from what ruled the land in the past. And it's not the entrepreneurial model that attracted many dealers into this business in the first place.
