Scott Galloway: Switch to Nintendo

March 30, 2017

Winner: Cadillac, which just launched a major innovation. For $1500/month you can lease any Caddy you want, then switch to a new one when you realize how lame you look.

Loser: Apparel brands that Amazon is ripping off. Many of the e-tailer's new private label designs look strangely...familiar.

Loser: Uber drivers, who don't benefit from the company's success.

Winner: Nintendo, which sold 1.5 million Switch consoles in a week. Another metric for the brand's success: how many gamers stopped watching porn to use the Switch.
