    China is a sovereign nation. Get used to leading from behind.

    Meanwhile, what point exactly, so as I might avoid it?
    Wal-Mart provides retail opportunities to the poor that no one else does.

    PS...the article substantiated the evidence contained within it.

    You on the other hand continually fail to substantiate ANYTHING you post.

    Still running, I see.

    Wal-Mart acts rationally as a business. When Dems understand that, the economy will improve.

    Lefties are morally and ethically compromised by their criticism of the one one retail business that helps the poor.

    That's a strawman argument that makes no sense.

    Not necessarily. As long as Wal-mart believes it can make a profit in the status quo they might not want to take that risk of switching systems.

    This might be true but that doesn't solve our poverty issues. It only extends them.
