Amazon will survive the HQ2 fiasco. Its bigger problem is winning over reluctant advertisers

Hello! First, if you're a Prime subscriber, we'd love to hear what you think. Please take our quick survey here. What a week it’s been for Amazon. The company accustomed to being slobbered over by local municipalities got a cold welcome when it tried to expand to New York City, and ended up pulling out. It was another sign that the public's goodwill toward big tech is fading.   Amazon's business will be just fine without New York City. But more crucial to its business, and less publicly, it’s t...

I also frequently wonder how the hell everyone can afford these cool lives, whether they're regularly eating out at som...
