Write a maximum of two pages of paper in APA Format. write three, four, or five reasons arguing that the statement is accurate. (Or, write 3,4 or 5 reasons arguing that the statement is completely wrong.)
Statement 1: Joe Lonsdale is right, and Amazon should spin off AWS. (See Lonsdale’s WSJ editorial, which I uploaded with this requirement.) If you choose this option, presumably, you will look at financial statements and attempt some understanding of the underlying profitability of AWS, its position within the cloud computing oligopoly, and the underlying profitability of the rest of Amazon. I suggest that your thinking will be aided if you grab a piece of scrap paper and try to position each of Amazon’s various businesses within a BCG Matrix.
