    AMZN retail business got dead lock

    Continue Revenue Growth(say above 20%): It has to keep price low, lower than other stores which do not collect sales tax. So, the margin will be lower than before.

    Flat or Shrinking revenue: to have health and reasonable margin(close to Costco or Walmart).

    There is just no way to have high margin and high growth in the future because
    * Its base is already too big to have growth.
    * Consumers only have loyalty to the price. Won't like to pay higher price for the same products

    What is the solution for Amazon ?

    I think its CEO probably couldn't figure out and sold almost $200 million worth shares at the end of last year.
