    "The Gradual — Then Sudden — Disruption of Retail" is from the May 15, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Larry Downes and narrated by Sam Scholl.

Some want to bring innovation to a standstill (or at least to slow it down) through lawsuits and regulation so they can catch their breath. Larry Downes provides an invaluable guide for these confusing times, exploring nine critical areas in which technology is dramatically rewriting the rules of business and life.
