The point still remains, when you are JOBLESS, the prices would have to get to zero for them to benefit you when your job was eliminated by a Big Box.In retail, this has been going on for thousands of years; it's normal. What's different about Wal-Mart is that they share this productivity dividend with the poorest consumers via lower prices and expanded choices. What your source is actually arguing for is a shield from competition for favored small businesses. He would favor those small businesses at the expense of the poor.
And please, don't even get me started on the advantages Big Boxes gain in taxes breaks and free infrastructure small retailers can only dream about.
