The True Value Of Walmart


Recommended Posts

Any reactions from those who watched this program?

The outsourcing of jobs to China (due to pressures from Wal-Mart to force manufacturers to supply goods at an artificially low price) was the main issue addressed, and the numbers are sobering. How can this trade imbalance be good for America?

I wish Frontline had had more than an hour to examine other issues Wal-Mart has had on America; there wasn't time to address the effect it has had on smaller communities, product choice, and their employment policies.

On the positive side, one cannot help but admire the way Wal-Mart has streamlined inventory control and anticipated of consumer desires and needs. Their efficiency is to be admired; the preditory tactics, not.
