Netflix and Learn – Hasan Minhaj’s Analysis of Amazon

Michael Albanese

3rd March 2019

There are some business gems on Netflix at the moment, but few as relevant, engaging and funny as episode 3 of Hasan Minhaj’s ‘Patriot Act’.

In it, he addresses the dichotomy of Amazon’s lack of ethics and disturbing (almost unbridled) power, with its outstanding and addictive customer-focus. He uses evidence and theory to back up his well-developed points, and comes to a well informed decision... exactly what our students have to do in just over 80 days.

To keep students engaged, I’ve created this task sheet (PowerPoint) in which they have to tick off and explain the 30 business concept that arise in the 20-minute episode, and then be ready to apply them to the e-commerce behemoth. I’ll continue to add question sheets for different programmes as I feel they work as excellent synoptic revision activities.

Hope it helps!
