Barnes & Noble

Factors of Production
Barnes & Noble has a net worth of $1 billion and employs 41,000 people including seasonal and temporary employees.
Barnes and Noble has also decided to continue with NOOK sales. The NOOK creates a big profit loss because of the downfall of the entirety of the e-reader industry. Even Amazon has taken a toll from the plunge with its Kindle. Even with Barnes and Noble pairing up with Samsung to turn the NOOK into a tablet, sales did not increase enough to make up for the downfall. But with a few million NOOK users, the company decided to keep the device as part of its business for now.
