Amazon Could Soar With India's Help

Amazon (NYSE: AMZN) is betting big on Indian shoppers over the coming days. They have used all kinds of tactics to grab marketshare in India as the nation celebrates Diwali and starts to spend a lot of money. Amazon is doing everything besides sending out armed thugs to disrupt the businesses of Flipkart and Snapdeal. Although judging from that New York TImes expose on how awful of a company Amazon is, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. I mean, anywhere that encourages you to bring your laptop into the stall is basically one step removed from being North Korea.

Regardless, capturing some of the holiday spirit in India could give Amazon a huge leg up over it’s US rivals. The country is notoriously hard to break into, so it to gain a foothold in this space would surely put a scare into Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT.)
