Amazon is preparing to add hotel rooms to the robust list of things you can purchase in “the Everything Store.”
Amazon is hoping to bring onboard independent and boutique hotels that may not have the marketing resources to compete with large hospitality chains. Amazon is targeting New York, Los Angeles and Seattle to launch their new service by the 1st of the New Year.
“Amazon rivals Wal-Mart as a store, Apple as a device maker, and IBM as a data services provider.”
Amazon has definitely had a influence in all most all of our lives, but at this rate, Amazon will be eating, sleeping, and breathing with us as they continue to make their presence felt in new markets.
Since the days of the Rockefellers, Vanderbilt’s, and Carnegies, monopolies we not meant to be continued in modern day business.
I’m not sure about you but I believe Amazons current business practices in moving the company in the direction of forming a monopoly in the online business sector. Before it is too late, we better hope business-governing officials step in and closely monitor and regulate their activity moving forward.
The forming of monopolies would be a huge detriment to society as our freedom as consumers will be taken away.
