Paradigm shifts, Creative destruction, call it what you will.
The end of store in America, how can an employee hourly model compete with an online no-rent/no-brick model. Commercial landlords in malls must be scratching their heads as my beloved Barnes & Noble is. What survives will likely be a hybrid -> commission sales based / consumer’s distributing model (here’s a link). A pick up shop and delivery joint, closer to seamless and the restaurant business.
The problem of life is that it is not linear. Momentary enjoyment is about the flow state.
