What consumers want

Joseph Pine offers an interesting viewpoint on what’s driving (or should be driving) future markets in the scramble for consumer dollars. It’s a video from a 2004 presentation at TED. While that’s an eternity in terms of “Internet Years”, many of the things he talked about then, like Starbucks ability to sell 15¢ worth of coffee for $2.50, have come to fruition today. Agree or disagree, it’s food for thought.
