AP Economics Essay #1 The Amazon Economy. Fall, 2017-2018 School Year Due: 13 October 2017
Internet companies are all the rage on Wall Street, and companies like Uber are disrupting the economy to the benefit of a few stockholders, and presumably the consumer public which uses these services are happier and better served than by the more traditional stores and businesses. But are these changes really a benefit to the economy as a whole, or does it signal a change that benefits owners at the expense of workers? Is this just a taste of what the future is going to bring, with fewer, more technical jobs but large numbers of people unemployed? Can our economy survive this change, or will the economy begin to fundamentally change with it?
