"We are shopping ourselves out of jobs."

A long, but worthwhile article on Walmart, particularly interesting because it focuses on the impact Walmart has on the companies who supply the goods on the shelves:

Whether you want to argue the WTO party line about overseas factories or not, I can't help but think that if a company feels it has no choice but to close American factories in order to fulfill a Wal-Mart contract, that's no good. It's one thing that Walmart is putting mom-and-pop retailers out of business, but when Levi's and Vlasic are hurting too, it makes me wonder.
