Everything you think you know about the economy of the Internet is dead wrong - Quartz
Business-to-business digital commerce is ten times the size of the business-to-consumer space, according to the UN Commission on Trade and Development’s “Information Economy Report 2015.” Seventy-five percent of the economic value of the digital economy goes to traditional bricks and mortar businesses and not Internet companies. This is true worldwide, not just in developed economies. [...] [ ICT only employs 3% of labour market in Europe ] [ SME, SMB, Mittelstand critical for economies, not conglomerates and multinationals ] [ all the while the global digital economy is flat indeed ] [ Services have become big item number in GDP terms, and largest employer in # - 45% while non-services 23% ]

It wouldn’t say at the time what that meant for its Go offering.
