Today on Your Call: What is Amazon’s agenda?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about how the largest internet retailer is transforming business. Amazon’s model of deep discounts has allowed it to become the dominant book retailer. What allows the company to offer so many discounts? Are you an Amazon shopper? Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. We’ll also talk about how Amazon has used its political power to avoid sales taxes and other regulations. Where is Amazon headed next?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Steve Wasserman, editor-at-large for Yale University Press and former editor of the Los Angeles Times Book Review
