Interview with Ryan Craver about the retail earnings and future of global commerce

 

A lot has happened since the last interview with Ryan, which by the way is probably one of the most informed people in the retail business I know of!  Needless to say, I was excited to get together again and discuss the current state of the industry and the latest earning reports with Ryan.

 

Some of the topics we discussed:

- Earnings: Alibaba, Tencent, JD, Walmart, Target, Amazon

- How the Global ecommerce frontlines are forming ans who's winning

- Walmart acquisitions and what's the truth behind the numbers

- Amazon & Whole Foods: what everyone thinks is the reason and Ryan's take

- Grocery challenges: why are the large grocery chains MIA in online commerce? 

- Shopify and Square: the lines in platforms are blurring and how these two newcommers are eating the monolith's lunch. 

 

And a lot more.

Ryan also has one of the best retail industry email newsletters, the Tech Infused Retail and I highly recommend subscribing to it from his website and follow him on Twitter.
