    That Sam Walton was a smart guy. Looks like a whole lot of win win win and not a small amount of competing whine whine whine.

    Like the 114 dead non-union Bangla Deshi's who worked for him?

    The very rich guy.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
