Wal-Mart - Corporate Juggernaut

| No TrackBacks

If you missed it, CNBC will be reairing the "Age of Wal-Mart" documentary. It really was an eye-opener. I always thought Wal-Mart was a rural store which was quite at home in the deep South. However, during the past 10 yrs it has nearly become a Real Estate firm, in that it has consumed huge stretches of landscape in the US.

In fact, there are many cities that have vowed never to allow Wal-Mart to advance into its metropolitan areas. It has become the Evil Empire in many circles.

It appears that they are also struggling with countless lawsuits, relative to its hiring practices and salary inequities.

Perhaps most intriguing, is Wal-Mart plans to use the controversal RFID technology for its merchandise that ships from China and overseas. It has become apparent that other retailers will soon follow.

Is Wal-Mart Good Innovation Really Good for America?
