    The claim from you has continually been that they benefit the poor, which included arguments on employment. As I showed, WM has a negative effect on ALL employment within the community.




    An effect on manufacturing, however, is fantasy. Wal-Mart is a symptom of manufacturing's departure, not a cause. Wal-Mart's price and choice benefits are significant and widely felt. Like all drivers of increased efficiency and productivity, Wal-Mart enriches the whole society.
    You are just going in circles, I already documented the effect WM has on manufacturing, I documented the effect WM has on employment.

    All you have you have is a cynical argument on price....but you ignore the cost.

    Would those food stamp costs decrease if Wal*Mart disappeared?

    I suppose it makes sense if one lacks interest in context.

    Isn't the principal advantage of a big-box enterprise the economy of scale? Wal*Mart has over decades proven its ability to exploit that advantage to the max. Those other things are minor details.

    It does make perfect sense if shrinking the job pool doesn't bother you.

    The argument was how have they gained advantage, I answered with bribery, you respond that "everyone does it" and plce the burden of proof upon me to show evidence of other bribery....which is documented in the case of WM....but not of "others".

    It is another example of your screwy logic......and of your apathy towards the real story.

    But keep on with your shallow rhetoric, it is what you are good at.

    You think that companies should voluntarily turn down proffered government subsidies? Why aren't you campaigning to repeal the subsidies???

    A cynic is a person who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.
    The price savings are massive.
