A Wal-Mart World

Did you know that 1 out of 115 people in the United States are employeed at those blue low-price forts? Did you know that if it were a nation, it would be one of the world's top 20 economies? John Dicker has a new book out that looks at this corporate giant called The United States of Wal-Mart.

Where I live, there are no other real competitors except Krogers, Food Lion, and Buy-Lo. For those who live near a Cosco, I found this article quite interesting. Link.
