The funny thing about Americans is they don't realize that things like netflick or amazon or whatever is the basis for their crumbling economy.
You are ordering something that you could simply go a kilometer down the street for and then return the next day.
I can? Please, direct me to this magical place.

Netflix in a helluva lot cheaper than a normal video rental store, and they don't dick you around with late fees.
I think he means the local economies, at least that is what I think he means. Things like netflix and amazon hurt brick and mortar stores.

Which is true online shoping can hurt the local economy.
But netflix, like BB online offer a far wider selection of movies than could ever be feasible at a brick and mortar store, so netflix and BlockBuster online are offering more than you could walk down the street and get.
Also I keep hearing about Blockbuster going out of business at least in the brick and mortar stores, but they seem busier now than ever. And we still have 3 of them within about 2 miles of my house.
