   Investment Thoughts - Quotes on the Fly

Away from the tangible towards the intangible.

"Much has been written, and continues to be written, about the decline of bricks-and-mortar retail spaces – shopping malls etc. – in favour of online retail outlets such as Amazon (see for example an article in the Wall Street Journal).


But underneath that shift, which is undoubtedly real, perhaps there’s another shift, away from the consumption of material things in general, and towards the consumption of experiences.


Away from the tangible towards the intangible."
