The Tentacles of Adjacency

 

 

John and Glen celebrate Amazon Prime Day by comparing notes on this marketing phenomenon, discussing the collateral damage to brick and mortar retailers, and consider how banks and credit unions can combat the time-tested model of competitors pursuing adjacent markets. Plus a “Stranger Things” spoiler.
