Publisher's Summary

How the physical world around us influences what we buy and consume online by Wharton professor and consumer shopping behavior expert David R. Bell. An audiobook for current and future entrepreneurs, business and economics students, professional investors, and anyone else with a stake or interest in how use of the Internet is likely to evolve.

Conventional wisdom holds that the Internet makes the world flat and reduces friction, erasing the impact of the physical world on our buying habits. But Wharton professor and marketing expert David R. Bell argues that the way we use the Internet is largely shaped by the physical world that we inhabit. Anyone can go online and buy a pair of pants - but the likelihood that we would do so depends to a significant degree on where we live. The presence of stores nearby, trendy and friendly neighbors, and local sales taxes play a large role in the decision-making process when it comes to buying online.

Location Is (Still) Everything is for anyone who wants to understand the patterns underlying how and why we use the Internet to shop, sell, and search, including entrepreneurs, students, and investors. This audiobook is not only about Internet trends and innovations, but also about fundamental human behavior and the role that the Internet plays in our daily lives.
