Forget about the other tech giants: Amazon is poised to beat them all. What are the consequences for the rest of us?

Die Wahlkampagne der SPÖ, die schon bisher von einer beispiellosen Pleiten, Pech und Pannen-Serie überschattet war, hat ein weiteres Highlight geliefert, das das Politische Wien amüsiert. Eine angeblich von einem “SP-Insider” stammende, schmerzhaft-treffende Schwächenanalyse des Bundeskanzlers und Spitzenkandidaten Christian Kern hat den Weg in ein SP-nahes Boulevardblatt gefunden und gibt nun die Frage auf: Unvorsichtigkeit und Inkompetenz oder Putschversuch um zu retten, was noch zu retten ist?
