THE FUTURE OF RETAIL AND CONSUMPTION
As consumers, people are significantly influenced in their behaviour and decisions by new technological, economic and social developments. Once a trend becomes mainstream, it can turn entire industries and business models upside down. The GDI investigates such disruptions in the system, analyses the consequences for retail and identifies new models.
