Цифровая идентичность: почему об ограничении анонимности в интернете должен задуматься каждый

Парадигма «Digital identity» может звучать крайне непонятно и сложно. Трудность восприятия этого концепта обусловлена не только техническими вопросами, но и юридическими аспектами. Возможно, вы задумаетесь: это не про меня, это меня не касается. На самом деле касается.

Amazon: Everything From A To Z Now Includes Whole Foods

Many were surprised when Amazon recently announced its purchase of Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Those that love Amazon applauded the move while those that fear, or dislike, Amazon are using it to confirm their prediction of its “big-brother” takeover of the world. Competitors to prevent a complete takeover Of course, those that fear Amazon should take notice that Amazon has some formidable rivals – Apple, Facebook, and Google, which have their own growing eco-systems that are enveloping bigger and bigger chunks of commerce. Based on its recent resurgence under Satya Nadella, many would include Microsoft to this group. And if you include international players, Chinese Internet giant, Alibaba, should be added to the list of dominant competitors. Going back to the pre-digital world, people had similar concerns about General Motors and big Oil companies, such as Exxon Mobil. The writing has been on the wall Anyone that has been surprised by Amazon’s move to buy Whole Foods has not been noticing the writing on the wall for some time. Amazon started out as an online bookstore. The name was a curious choice for a bookstore. Many didn’t notice this because the company started in the “dot.com bubble” days when “interesting” names, such as Yahoo!, were in vogue. If you think about the branding more deeply, however, you might notice that the name “Amazon” relates to a lot of things – mostly big and powerful. In Greek Mythology, the Amazons were women warriors that were warlike and aggressive. The Amazon River and rainforest are vast and powerful. If you look at Amazon’s logo, it has an arrow pointing from the “a” to the “z” – not-so-subtly implying Amazon wants to sell you everything. From online bookstore to world’s biggest retailer Most think of Amazon as an online retailer since the company branded itself that way and lots of us buy products from Amazon on their e-Commerce Web site. Amazon recently passed Walmart as the world’s biggest retailer (note: some dispute this claim when Alibaba in included). Unless you need to touch, feel, and try on the merchandise, Amazon is perhaps the most convenient place to find and buy products ever invented. Marketers know that the primary added-value function of distribution is convenience. That’s not all. Buyers can use the site to read reviews, receive suggestions, and comparison shop for better prices. With increasing disincentives to go to physical stores - traffic, parking, wasted time, and opportunity costs, Amazon has gained the upper hand as more and more people feel comfortable buying online. However, since Amazon offers ultra competitive prices on small margins, it typically loses money on small orders. Offering Prime pre-paid membership is an attempt to dampen these losses. Generating sales is not the same as making money Because of its miniscule margins, Amazon went a very long time - over 20 years without making real money. Jeff Bezos, and his shareholders, were amongst the most patient people in the world. That patience has paid off since Amazon surpassed Berkshire Hathaway and Exxon Mobile as the 4th most valuable company in the world after Apple, Alphabet (Google), and Microsoft. How did Amazon do it? Much more than e-commerce Widening out its original focus, Amazon has expanded into many other businesses. A partial list is summarized below: Artificial Intelligence: Amazon created the Alexa artificial intelligence platform and Dot digital assistant. Banking: Prime members receive discounts if they use Amazon Prime branded debit and credit cards. Cloud computing: While continuing to grow its other businesses, what seems to be contributing the most to its profits is Amazon Web Services, or AWS. Started in 2006, this part of Amazon has consistently grown to capture a dominant 45% share of the cloud computing infrastructure market – greater than Microsoft, Google, and IBM combined. Using a rule of thumb devised by the Boston Consulting Group (companies that have ≥ 20% market share are almost always profitable), it seems that Amazon’s initiatives in cloud computing and its other B2B activities are likely to continue to pay off handsomely. Entertainment: Amazon has created award-winning original TV and movie content, sells digital music and video, and offers a streaming music service. Prime members receive free or discounted content. Logistics: Amazon has developed a Prime Air drone delivery service, which it is testing. In addition to delivering goods ordered from Amazon, Prime Air will deliver people and goods to and from Airborne Fulfillment Centers (AFCs), which are flying warehouses for which Amazon has filed a patent. It is also talking about delivering goods via autonomous trucks once they are allowed. Manufacturing: To facilitate purchases of books and other products on its Web site, Amazon introduced the Kindle e-Book reader. It has since added products such as the Echo high quality table-top speaker and the Tap portable bluetooth speaker. Retail: Amazon has opened bricks and mortar bookstores and checkout-free grocery stores branded as Amazon Go. While many are confused as to why the e-Commerce giant would open physical stores, it makes a lot of sense if you understand the a-to-z branding and possible distribution economies. Moreover, nothing replaces a physical store for seeing, feeling, and “trying on” the merchandise. With physical stores, Amazon has widened out its distribution channels, and will give online rivals, such as Alibaba, a run for their money. Technology: Amazon has received a patent for a technology to identify and counter in-store price comparisons via mobile devices. This should provide a disincentive for people to leave an Amazon store to buy products at lower prices elsewhere. Getting back to Whole Foods Adding the Whole Foods chain to its Go grocery stores and Fresh delivery service enables Amazon to create greater buyer convenience options and grocery distribution economies. It also allows Amazon to proliferate its “Go” convenience concept to other retail outlets. Just as Uber eliminated some of the inefficiencies with summoning cabs, Amazon is taking away the inconvenience of waiting in line and paying for groceries and retail goods. By giving buyers online, bricks and mortar, and delivery options along with discounts and other benefits associated with Prime membership, Amazon is doing its best to become the one-stop for virtually everything. It’s creating a scalable ecosystem that gives consumers convenience and choice. Will it be a “big brother” takeover of the universe? Not likely if Apple, Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and possible future competitors have anything to say about it. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Про рост глобального богатства в 2016 году

      В английском языке есть такое понятие - wealth. Оно на русский переводится плохо. Это совокупная стоимость всех активов. Как правило с помощью этого понятия оценивают богатство населения (физиков). Например, когда нужно оценить стоимость всех активов, которые принадлежат населению США, то используют понятие wealth.      И есть в США такая консалтинговая контора - Boston Consulting Group. Она ежегодно публикует отчет о росте совокупного богатства по странам и регионам. На прошлой неделе они выпустили отчет о росте глобального богатства в 2016 году. Там есть пара любопытных диаграмм.      Совокупное обгатство всех физиков в мире (включая олигархов) составило в 2016 году 166,5 трлн. долларов и выросло оно за год на 5,3%. По регионам оно делится следующим образом.      Население Северной Америки владеет активами на сумму 55,7 трлн долларов. Население Западной Европы - на сумму 40,5 трлн. долларов. Восточной Европы - на сумму 3,6 трлн. долларов. Япония - 14,9 трлн. долларов, Тихоокеанская Азия - 38,4 трлн. долларов. Россия попадает в Восточную Европу.      Самые низкие темпы роста богатства в Японии, самые высокие в Тихоокеанской Азии.      Теперь, смотрите, какую долю национального дохода получает 1% населения.            В США 1% населения получает 22% национального дохода, во Франции - 8%, в Китае - 12%, в Великобритании - 10%.      Теперь, что является источником доходов      Авторы исследования поделили доходы на 2 группы: доходы от существующих активов (зеленые сегменты) и доходы от нового бизнеса (синие сегменты). Зеленые сегменты это доходы от роста стоимости акций, а также доход на облигации и депозиты. Синие сегменты это доходы от роста экономики и прямых инвестиций. Как видите, в Азии доходы населения растут за счет прямых инвестиций и роста ВВП. Это здоровая ситуация. В США и Японии основной доход приносят фин. активы (акции и облигации). Это нездоровая ситуация.

К концу года суммарное богатство Азии впервые превысит богатство Европы

В Западной Европе объем частного богатства в прошлом году вырос на 3,2% и достиг 40,5 трлн долларов. Это самый маленький прирост по регионам планеты. Достаточно сказать, что объем частного богатства в АТР в 2016 г. увеличился на 9,5% и, достигнув 38,4 трлн долларов, почти догнал Западную Европу. В этом году, по прогнозам авторитетной в мире финансов Бостонской консалтинговой группы (BCG), частное богатство в АТР должно вырасти более чем на 10% и достичь 42,3 трлн долларов. Западной Европе же аналитики из BCG прогнозируют совсем маленький рост – до 41,9 трлн долларов.

Richest Americans Will Control 70% Of Country's Wealth By 2021, BCG Says

Being rich is great. But being rich in America? That’s even better. With US stock benchmarks trading just below record highs, and Treasury yields not too far from the all-time lows reached last summer, the gulf between the world’s wealthy elite – those 18 million households worldwide with more than $1 million in assets – and everybody else is rapidly widening. According to a new study by Boston Consulting Group via Bloomberg, these households - with a total head count of roughly 70 million people, or about 1% of the world’s population - control 45 percent of the $166.5 trillion in wealth. By 2021, they will control more than half, suggesting that, while wealth inequality in the rest of the world is simply accelerating, in America, it’s gone into overdrive. Right now, 63 percent of America’s private wealth in the hands of U.S. millionaires and billionaires, BCG said. By 2021, their share of the nation’s wealth will rise to an estimated 70 percent. “The share of income going to the top 1 percent in the U.S. has more than doubled in the last 35 years, after dropping in the decades after World War II (when the rich were taxed at high double-digit rates). The tide shifted in the 1980s under Republican President Ronald Reagan, a decade when “trickle-down economics” saw tax rates for the rich fall, union membership shrink, and stock markets spike.” In its report, BCG puts the global rate of wealth creation in 2015 and 2016 at 5.3 percent, though the consulting firm expects it to accelerate to about 6 percent annually for the next five years. Those gains will accrue almost exclusively to the wealthiest Americans, while wealth held by everyone else is just barely growing. Of course, there’s a caveat: In America, most of these gains exist only on paper. More than 70% of new wealth creation is derived from the rising value of rich investors’ portfolios. The rest is what BGC describes as “new wealth creation” aka real money earned by workers and entrepreneurs. Globally, the share derived from asset valuations falls to about 50%. “In the U.S., the creation of “new” wealth is a minor factor, making up just 28 percent of the nation’s wealth increase last year. It’s even lower in Japan, at 21 percent. In the rest of the Asia Pacific region, meanwhile, two-thirds of the rise is driven by new wealth creation.” The richest Americans could receive an additional bump if/when President Donald Trump pushes the fiscal agenda on which he campaigned through Congress – an agenda that includes tax cuts, deregulation and trillions of dollars’ worth of new infrastructure projects. However, since the exact details of these policies are not yet widely known, it’s difficult to predict their specific impact, BCG says. “’No one knows’ what kind of tax changes will become law, said BCG senior partner Bruce Holley. However, “this could buoy the [growth in U.S. wealth] that we are predicting.” America remains home to the highest concentration of millionaires and billionaires in the world, and their ranks are growing fast: Today, about 7 million Americans are worth more than $1 million. BCG expects that number to balloon to 10.4 million by 2021 - an annual growth rate of 8 percent, or about 670,000 new millionaires each year. China has the second most millionaires and billionaires, at 2.1 million, though its population is four times the size of the US. Within the US, glaring disparities exist from region to region. As Fortune reported back in 2015, roughly two-thirds of America’s millionaires and billionaires live in 12 metro areas, mostly wealthy enclaves along the coasts. Meanwhile, according to the Federal Reserve’s latest survey of household economics and decisionmaking, a quarter of American adults can’t pay all their monthly bills, and 44% have less than $400 cash on hand in case of an emergency.

As Brexit Negotiations Start, Companies Need Contingency Plans

Any company with substantial exposure to Brexit that hasn’t yet devised contingency plans to deal with a range of outcomes, including very bad ones, is about as far behind the curve as Britain’s current government seems to be right now. After a surprising parliamentary election result, uncertainty surrounds how the UK will handle the Brexit negotiations. Some argue that if the Conservatives had won their predicted supermajority, Theresa May, the British prime minister, would have been able to steer toward something a bit softer than a “hard Brexit,” because she wouldn’t have had to worry about keeping the extreme anti-EU fringe of the party on her side. But it also appears that a hard Brexit doesn’t carry widespread MP support. Apart from throwing one’s own prediction onto this heap, what can we say about what we have learned from the latest British general election and about what businesses should be doing to prepare? Sociopolitical forces are taking new prominence in market strategy. First, as Martin Reeves of the Boston Consulting Group has pointed out to me, “In many cases companies are seeing bigger impacts from political and macroeconomic factors than from competitive considerations.” The Brexit-related factors that he cites include exchange rate movements, share price shifts following policy announcements, and the cost of shifting investment plans in the light of anticipated shifts in trade policy. From a more general perspective, one could also add to the list the rise of NGOs, the proliferation of social media that facilitates social movements, and the increases in antiglobalization sentiment. Nonmarket strategy — the way that companies manage relationships with governments, nongovernment organizations, the media, and society at large — has traditionally taken a back seat to market strategy, with the usual practice being to set market strategy first and then determine which sociopolitical forces, etc., need to be exploited, sidestepped, or somehow countered to make the strategy work. This must change, at least for now. Identify regularity amid persistent uncertainty. Second, persistently high levels of uncertainty compromise traditional recommendations about how companies should react in such situations. The usual assumption is that uncertainty brought by political or economic events will diminish over time — that it’s just a matter of waiting it out. But a matter of ongoing policy flux can’t be approached in that fashion. My upcoming article in the July–August issue of HBR, “Globalization in the Age of Trump,” explains that one approach in such environments is to find regularities that are likely to continue to hold and then to rely on them in forming strategies. As Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, once put it, When I’m talking with people outside the company, there’s a question that comes up very commonly: “What’s going to change in the next five to ten years?” But I very rarely get asked “What’s not going to change in the next five to ten years?” At Amazon we’re always trying to figure that out, because you can really spin up flywheels around those things. Whether you agree with this approach or not, it is clear that some new approaches are required. Understand the law of distance. Third, of the regularities that I focus on in my work, the one that is most helpful in thinking about long-run prospects is the law of distance: the pattern evident across countries, industries, and time where international interactions are dampened by distance along cultural, administrative, geographic, and often economic dimensions. The implication is that, come what may between Britain and the EU by March 2019, the deadline by which Brexit has to be accomplished one way or another, the EU and the UK are natural trading partners. Related Video Lack of Information Stokes Globalization Anxiety The less we know about the world, the less we want to interact with it. Save Share See More Videos > See More Videos > As I wrote about here, there is no way, for instance, that the Commonwealth of Nations (made up mostly of former British colonies) comes close to the EU in terms of market potential for British companies. So, in the long run, I expect to see some kind of special access to the EU market for Britain, as opposed to just a snap back to the WTO rules that would afford Britain no privileges relative to any other WTO member in accessing EU markets. In another example, from the U.S. perspective, even if the U.S. targets Mexico and Canada on trade (as President Trump has said he will do in August), both of those countries are likely to remain among the U.S.’s largest trading partners and very dependent on the U.S. for their exports, irrespective of what happens with NAFTA. Consider that more than 100 years ago, the U.S. already accounted for 55%–60% of Mexico’s imports and 65%–75% of its exports — and U.S. businesses at that time had invested more in Mexico than in any other country, despite economic nationalism on the Mexican side of the border. Waiting and watching isn’t enough. Fourth, it would seem that waiting for some sort of restoration of close economic ties between Britain and the EU might take too long from the perspective of businesses with significant exposure to Brexit. In my earlier HBR articles on the topic, I wondered if it might be too soon for companies to act. I found it hard to imagine that a worldly commonwealth like the UK, with such a well-regarded civil service, would fail to be adequately prepared to embark on negotiations critical to its economic future. But given the shambolic nature of the Brexit process to date, I no longer take it for granted that an agreement will prevent large British industries such as automobiles or financial services from being locked out of the Continent. In other words, although we don’t know yet exactly what’s going to happen, so far the process does not inspire confidence. As a result, many companies in sectors most likely to be affected are starting to move. By early May, more than one-quarter of the 222 UK financial services firms monitored by the EY Brexit Tracker had announced that they are moving some activities out of the UK, or that they are reviewing their domicile as a result of Brexit — up significantly from January. And the Bank of England has written to the CEOs and branch managers of all firms with cross-border activities between the UK and the rest of the EU to ask for contingency plans by July 14. The major automakers have kept a lower profile, partly because economies of scale in car manufacturing will require difficult in-or-out decisions rather than incremental ones. Mary Barra, the CEO of GM, called Brexit one of the reasons the company needed to sell its underperforming European operations (under the Vauxhall and Opel brands) to PSA. There are concerns that automakers like Honda, Nissan, and Toyota may reassign new manufacturing work to their operations outside the UK. To take another example, Dublin-based Ryanair, which operates out of the UK under an EU “open skies” agreement, has warned that it might have to suspend UK flights for “weeks or months” without an early Brexit deal on aviation, because it schedules its flights 12 months in advance. To succeed in this uncertain environment, companies will need to anchor themselves in new ways. It seems clear that “business as usual” is no longer an option on any continent.
