EU und Mercosur: Warum Jair Bolsonaro plötzlich für den Freihandel ist - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dabei hatte kaum jemand mehr so richtig daran geglaubt, dass sich die Parteien dies- und jenseits des Atlantiks nochmal zusammenfinden. Aber plötzlich zeigten vor allem die Big Player Argentinien und Brasilien ungewohnte Einigkeit und machten so das Freihandelsabkommen möglich. Der Einigungswille ist politischem Kalkül und den jeweiligen nationalen Nöten geschuldet, aber auch der Einsicht, dass man sich auf dem Wüterich im Weißen Haus nicht verlassen kann.

Selbst Brasiliens rechtsradikaler Staatschef Jair Bolsonaro geht vorsichtig auf Distanz zu den USA und Donald Trump. So ist das Abkommen auch ein klares Zeichen aus Lateinamerika an den US-Präsidenten, der die Nafta mit Mexiko und Kanada aufgekündigt und dem Nachbarn neue Konditionen aufgedrückt hat. Die Region will weiter offene Märkte und faire Konditionen.

Umweltschützer warnen schon jetzt: Die neuen Absatzmärkte für Fleisch- und Sojaexporte könnten zur Folge haben, dass die Weide- und Anbauflächen erweitert werden - und dafür der Regenwald im Amazonas dran glauben muss.

Amazon Ups the Ante on Streaming Video, Challenging Netflix
Amazon has pulled the curtain back on its $9-a-month standalone video streaming service, which will give consumers access to content they otherwise could only get through Amazon Prime, which costs $99 a year. Amazon's new service is $1 a month cheaper than rival Netflix, // For years, the two have worked to one-up each other with exclusive content deals and original series like Netflix’s “House of Cards” and Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle.” [...] Amazon spends about $3 billion on streaming video content annually, compared with $4 billion for Netflix, not including overseas rights or DVDs, said Wedbush’s Mr. Pachter. For its part, Santa Monica, Calif.-based Hulu has become a competitive buyer of library and original programming, increasing its content outlays from $600 million in 2014 to $1.5 billion in 2015, according to estimates from Nomura Securities.

Börsenpläne von Spotify: Der Sound der Zocker
Eine Milliarde Dollar (880 Millionen Euro) leiht sich der Musikdienst laut "Wall Street Journal" bei Finanzinvestoren und der Großbank Goldman Sachs. Spotify verspricht den Geldgebern neben Zinszahlungen auch Anteile am Unternehmen. Wie viel Spotify zahlen muss und in welcher Größenordnung Anteile den Besitzer wechseln, hängt davon ab, wann die Schweden an die Börse gehen. Mit jedem Halbjahr, in dem das Start-up die Erstemission herauszögert, wird es jedenfalls teurer.

Das macht den Deal hochriskant für Spotify: Von Profitabilität ist der Dienst weit entfernt, 2014 fuhr der Dienst einen Verlust von 162 Millionen Euro ein. Die neuen Schulden könnten das Unternehmen in einen ruinösen Strudel von schrumpfenden Geldreserven, drückender Zinslast und immer mieseren Börsenaussichten reißen.

Nasty Gal Layoffs Hit 10 Percent of Staff | Re/code
Online fashion retailer Nasty Gal has laid off 10 percent of its staff, as the purveyor of edgy women’s clothing cuts costs amid an uncertain financing and retail environment. CEO Sheree Waterson told the company in an email that the cuts were necessary as the “market in which we operate is changing, both in retail broadly and apparel specifically.” Nineteen employees across several departments were let go. Nasty Gal also laid off some staff in 2014. The layoffs underscore the difficulty mature e-commerce startups can encounter as they transition from being a hot new brand to the long slog of building a more traditional retail business. In short, building a retail brand is really hard and technology can only afford you so many shortcuts along the way. Online beauty brand BirchBox announced layoffs of 15 percent of its staff last week, as startups in e-commerce tighten belts as investors become more wary of unprofitable growth.

MPs launch tax inquiry after criticism of £130m Google-HMRC deal | Business | The Guardian
MPs have launched an inquiry into the UK’s tax system after the government was accused of allowing Google to pay too little in a £130m deal. The House of Commons Treasury committee announced that it would examine whether a radical shakeup of corporation tax was needed, amid concern that Google has been allowed to get away with an effective rate of 3%. The inquiry is not directed at Google, but will investigate the UK’s shrinking corporate tax base more widely and whether HMRC is doing enough to tackle avoidance. It will ask whether there needs to be a radical shakeup of the system, and whether business taxation could be based on turnover rather than profits.

Minister will tell Amazon to pay living wage as firm makes new jobs pledge (From Herald Scotland)
MINISTERS are to meet Amazon bosses to discuss concerns over pay and working conditions at the online retail giant, as it emerged that the firm is set to create hundreds of new jobs in Scotland this year. The Scottish Government will attempt to persuade the company to pay the living wage to workers, after Nicola Sturgeon was challenged over claims that its warehouses are an "exceptionally horrible place" to work despite it being backed millions in public grants.

Sports Direct is a reflection of the modern British economy | Letters | Business | The Guardian
Sports Direct seems to be a metaphor for the modern British economy. “The conscious strategy would seem to be to rely on cheap labour rather than costly investment,” as your editorial (11 December) says. It also illustrates the epidemic growth of workforce insecurity which plagues a nation scarred by the rise of the precariat. Britain is rapidly becoming the sweatshop of Europe, and this, along with bubbles in consumer debt and house prices, has been a major part in such anaemic recovery as we have seen over the past five years.

Amazon schickt Pakete von Deutschland nach Deutschland über Polen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Amazon erklärt seine Logistikstrategie so: "Im Rahmen unseres europäischen Netzwerkes von derzeit 30 Logistikzentren in sieben Ländern denken wir nicht in Landesgrenzen, sondern in Entfernungen, Erreichbarkeit und logistischer Anbindung. Das bedeutet, wir können von überall nach überall liefern. Deutschland mit seiner zentralen Lage in Mitteleuropa ist besonders wichtig."

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

Roku Inc.’s hardware, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox, and Sony Corp.’s PlayStation, which work with Amazon’s video service, aren’t affected, Amazon said. // - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10312938

VW: Das Auto? Der Betrug! Jakob Augstein zur Abgas-Affäre - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Nicht nur Banken betrügen, auch die Industrie. Das zeigt der VW-Skandal. Deutschland hält sich eher ans Recht als das Ausland? Ein Irrtum. Guter Kapitalismus, böser Kapitalismus? Gibt's nicht. Nur die Notwendigkeit des starken Staates. [...] Die Amoralität ist in der Idee der Firma an sich eingebaut. Menschen haben (vielleicht) Moral. Firmen nicht. Da liegt ein grundlegendes Missverständnis im modernen Kapitalismus. [...] In einem langen Artikel über Wirtschaftsethik hat der "Economist" einmal geschrieben: "Unternehmen, die lügen und betrügen, können nicht erwarten, lange im Geschäft zu sein, selbst wenn ihre Handlungen vom Gesetz gestattet sind." Wir wissen, dass das Gegenteil der Fall ist. Aber so streuen sich die Gralshüter der liberalen Wirtschaftsideologie selbst Sand in die Augen. [ The Corporation (2005) by Joel Bakan ] [...] Beschreibt das nicht perfekt das Wesen der großen Konzerne - je größer, desto besser? Und VW ist sehr groß. [ Amazon's monopsony ]

Worker confronts M&S chief over 'poverty wages' | Society | The Guardian
Gewinnbeteiligung & workers rep on board of directors!? Like in Germany. Especially in customer facing ops! It's not just about price, its also customer service! customer experience. acquisition (word of mouth, net promoter score - vs - getting foot-fall up through sales and deals) customer engagement. customer retention and empowerment - to make the better choice to shop where people are treated well, paid well, and shared economic interest (environment, ecology, sustainability, local economy and jobs (multiplier effects)). Compelling people to make a mindful and conscious choice, day to day and for the long-term! Differentiate, don't fight with Amazon and big grocery retailers for price, sales, deals. That war you lost already because you can't win that way (bc of them having deeper pockets, shareholders which look away since ever in case of Amazon, and it is their identity; why ppl shop there), new business, away from Amazon, Tesco & ASDA. And especially Lidl and Aldi.
