For Next Week....

Note that I didn't put "Wal-Mart" in the title of this post, else it'll come up in a thousand Google news feeds and searches in Bentonville and trigger a whole bunch of questions.

No matter, that's the topic. Here's a very interesting article from the Washington Post a few years back by the thoughtful and respected Sebastian Mallaby about Wal-Mart. Here's a link to their website, "Wal-Mart Facts," so you can get a better feel for their side of the story.

And of course, so Bill doesn't have to do it, here's a link to "Wake Up Wal-Mart ," the union group that's been waging war on the world's largest retailer, including working with plaintiff's law firms to file all the many class action suits that you read about.

Hope this all triggers some more thought on our favorite topic of the week. See you next Thursday.
