16 Nov Ecommerce News Roundup | 14 November 2022
US Inflation came in lower than expected last week – will this feed into better news on interest rates? Probably not immediately but at least the ecommerce news is moving in the right direction.
Despite big lay-offs in tech, much of this is just rowing back on an unjustified hiring spree last year. Meta let go 11,000 but it had hired 15,000 extra in the last 12 months.
And the world of Crypto is having a major wobble. Good if you enjoy the schadenfreude of watching smug crypto experts looking less smug. Not so good if you were one of those speculators – sorry I mean investors.

As always, have a good week…
Price is what you pay; Value is what you get.
