The New Economy

1 Dec

Leading on from Lecture 6, an example of a web service that has rendered the ‘middle man’ useless is online ordering and shopping.

For example, if you wanted a week of fresh groceries and other assorted items that you would otherwise have taken a trip to the local Tesco or Asda to buy, you can now order everything you need online, and it will be delivered to your doorstep relatively speedily.

This eliminates the need for material stores and shop workers, because everyone has the ability to order what they want on the supermarket websites. Admittedly, a large number of people prefer to shop within the actual supermarkets, for a number of reasons, but the web service has the potential to remove the need for supermarkets entirely.
