EACA SIGNS CODE OF CONDUCT ON DISINFORMATION
The Working Group officially handed over the Code of Practice on Disinformation to Commissioner Mariya Gabriel on 16 October 2018. This is the first time that industry, comprising both platforms and the ad industry, came together to commit to contributing to reducing the exposure of citizens to fake news.
EACA, alongside, for example, Google and Facebook, was part of the Working Group and is signatory of the Code. In signing up to the Code, EACA commits to raising awareness among its membership of the Code and encouraging them to commit, for example, to increase scrutiny around ad placements and transparency on why users are seeing certain ads.
The hand-over concludes a period of six months during which the Working Group met more than 30 times to draft the Code, consulting with their headquarters and membership and receiving feedback from the European Commission and the Sounding Board.
The Code is now open to additional signatories. The European Commission will continue monitoring progress on signatories’ commitments and will come up with an action report in December 2018.
BEZOS PREDICTS THE FALL OF AMAZON
Amazon is going to fail, Jeff Bezos, the tech company’s founder, told staff recently, The Guardian reports.
In an all-hands meeting with his staff, the world’s richest man made the surprising warning that Amazon, currently valued just short of $1tn and regarded as the most fearsome retailer on the planet, would one day face its own demise.
“Amazon is not too big to fail … In fact, I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not a hundred-plus years,” Bezos told staff, according to a recording that was heard by CNBC.
Bezos was addressing a question about Sears, once the world’s largest retail chain, which filed for bankruptcy in October – collapsing in large part after its failure to compete with Amazon.
In order to stave off Amazon’s demise, Bezos said, Amazon would have to “obsess over customers” and avoid looking inward. “If we start to focus on ourselves instead of focusing on our customers, that will be the beginning of the end,” he said. “We have to try and delay that day for as long as possible.”
CHINESE TO BECOME TOP LUXURY BUYERS
The Chinese will become a driving force for the luxury market, according to a study by the Bain consulting firm, which shows that by 2025, they will make almost half of the world’s luxury commodity buying.
Chinese buyers will have a 46 percent share in the world’s luxury goods sales, worth $365 billion in estimates, according to the Bain study, made for Altagam, the Italian association of luxury product makers, AP reports.
Last year, wealthy Chinese accounted for a third of the world’s total purchases of clothing, accessories and cosmetics. According to Bain, it is estimated that the sale of expensive goods will grow 2.0 percent to 260 billion euros this year, excluding luxury art, design and decoration.
