ANDREW SIMMS TESCOPOLY PDF

Tesco, he recalls, was the "most vigorous" in its response, pledging to address criticisms about poor pay and conditions. The result is Tescopoly. It controls a third of the UK grocery market and has enough land and assets in the UK to further double in size. Under the guise of creating employment, choice and low prices, he aims to show that the reality is that they are destroying jobs, diversity and the social glue that holds communities together. People have taken on trust their promises about jobs and choice, but one of the reasons they are so profitable is that, pound for pound of consumer spending, they employ fewer people.

Shelves: books-i-own , business-finance , cheap-books , e-book , non-fiction , dnf Okay Yet Simms seemed to be more concerned about painting a picture of an individual supermarket heralding the start of some Orwellian future - brimming with data breaches, informational control and mind-games - whilst completely bypassing many of the positive elements which larger businesses can bring.

True, large businesses can have a detrimental impact on community enterprises. True, we are witnessing a fall in the number of independent pharmacists, doctors, bakeries, etc.

And, true, Tescos among supermarket structures is going to continue to try to expand into several different areas of business to strengthen their hold on the market. But we have to remember that the days of visiting the individual establishments of the butchers, bakers and candle-stick makers down high street are largely over - in its place we have greater access to more varieties of foods at a far cheaper prices than would otherwise be obtainable without utilising economies of scope and scale.

The ability for consumers to go to one location to purchase eggs, shoes and a new alarm clock in the same journey has increased convenience and, in itself, is a very good business idea if, on some occasions, slightly flawed in practice.

What should have been emphasised here is not necessarily that the idea of large businesses, as utilised by Tesco, is wrong - because it is possible for an ethical business of this size, one with customers at its heart, to flourish.

Rather, that an abuse of a dominant market share is wrong. Companies like Tescos have grown and flourished because they are doing something right in meeting the needs of their customers - not just because they have blundered their way onto the scene intent on killing competitors and leaving consumers with no other option.

Much of the material covers the impacts of globalisation, large corporations and climate change, information which will be familiar to those who have read any other literature on these subjects. Many books have discussed these topics in a more thorough and coherent fashion which made this account feel slightly redundant. I would have certainly agreed that they are bland and uninspiring but this seemed somewhat exaggerated.

Ultimately the reader is left wondering whether Tesco operates in a fashion much different to any other large supermarket chain, as there are very few comparisons made between them in the text. Despite containing some useful information, on the whole this was disappointing, as it failed to organise the research material effectively and would have benefitted by concentrating more on the supposed subject of the book.

If you read this book it will or should! Watch out America, Tesco intends to invade you next! The guy who wrote this is up there with Michael Moore in my opinion. Read this to support my studies for my Economics A level - a subject which is not supposed to be highly judgemental or take sides. This book contrasted well with that and enlightened me on the many different lights we can view global, dominating businesses in and the supporting arguments for either side.

Taking on Tesco

And this identification, he finds, is shared by both Kurdish and Turkish communities as well as by those with religious and non-religious beliefs. The book provides detailed insights into these migrant experiences, while also considering the theoretical explanations. It is a really welcome contribution for everyone concerned with the problems and challenges of integration and of identify today. It is to be welcomed that the study spans macro and micro levels. Also to be welcomed is that it eschews the idea that identity and culture is fixed and unchanging, providing some fascinating and important examples to the contrary, and that it moves beyond essentially culturalist approaches to entrepreneurship and even more so, mainstream individualist ones. Having relatively limited education and knowledge in the English language together with discrimination in the mainstream labor made the transition attractive.
