Do the Benefits of Wal-Mart Outweigh Its Drawbacks?


  1. People blathering on about "the Jews" aren't welcome here. Anti-Semitism is socialism for stupid people, as Marx observed. (Socialism, I would argue, is anti-Semitism for intellectuals, and for the same reason.)

  2. In your piece, Clayton, you approach the real justification for Walmart - the value it provides its customers.

    Lowering prices of goods raises the living standards of all of its customers. The idea that all of its customers should have their living standard lowered to increase the living standard of the few Walmart employees is on its face ridiculous.

  3. Exactly my point--there's much to dislike about Wal-Mart, but there are definite benefits that they produce for everyone--even those who don't shop there.
