Softwide

Fascinating example of an LT business model. The more I think about this, it seems obvious that retailing is the prime candidate for losing out to an LT strategy. After all, the economics of retailing consists of creating scarcity by controlling shelf space and location on the demand side, and building of economies of scale through this limited choice of goods on the supply side. Both of these are absolutely vulnerable to the economics of abundance made possible by an LT strategy.

Nice post, although I would point out that the distribution scarcity in physical retail is not artificial, but very real.
