Amazon’s Prime Day event could lead to $10 billion in lost productivity, says CNBC analyst

"To put a number on it: Prime Day could result in roughly $10 billion in lost productivity, according to CNBC data journalist Eric Chemi. Chemi suggests that with most of the roughly 85 million Prime members spending an estimated average of 1 minute on Amazon every time a new round of deals pop up, over the length of a 30-hour event, there’ll be many hours not spent looking at spreadsheets and word processors. And that should only be exacerbated by the number of people who’ll think about buying Prime to look into what’s available."
