business news in context, analysis with attitude

Interesting piece in the Detroit Free Press about how new programs announced by both Amazon and Walmart - the ability to let their employees deliver products to the interior of people’s homes, even putting things way in the refrigerator or freezer - could have an unanticipated impact.

It is, the story suggests, a modern reality - as “technology advances … policies will have to catch up.”
