About this Episode

Amazon has narrowed down it’s search for a second headquarters to 20 cities. Is the promise of 50,000 jobs and $38bn shot into the local economy worth it? We don’t really know, of course, but we talk through some issues to consider and strategy frameworks for thinking through the question. Plus, we talk about bi-modal IT as relates to dad jeans, metaphorically speaking.
