E-commerce & Print -- The Model Still Holds -- And More Articles

Today I got the latest data about e-commerce as a percentage of retail sales data. I analyzed this data series in a previous post
Well, for the fourth quarter, this percentage jumped from 2.2% to 2.7% of retail sales. Guess what? The model held true, with an r-squared of 90%. But now it's for every .1 percentage point increase in the share that e-commerce has, the model forecasts a $1.6 billion decline in annual printing shipments. No wonder the fourth quarter was so horrid. E-commerce took a huge leap at that time.
