About the book
About the future of shopping in a world of always connected retail
A crisis is at hand: neither brick-and-mortar shops nor webshops can keep up with the rapid changes in consumer behavior. In the coming years, the societal impact of digitalization will lead to the end of online shopping [as we know it]. In the future world of shopping, everything will be digitally connected and fused together. We call this always connected retail. The way in which we shop will be turned upside down. The way businesses are led no longer fits the bill. The world of shopping as a social sector is making a 180-degree turn.
Connected retail entails a new economic paradigm of four mutually reinforcing economies: smart, sharing, circular, and glocal (global + local). Together, these lead the way to a new economic order: one that is more personal, equal, green, and accessible for people and society. If governments, companies, and people fail to take responsibility and neglect to take proper measures now, it could spell disaster for human society.
