the reason this is still receiving responses is that it's still entirely relevant, and in the current economic situation, Wal-Mart is able to expand their hold and is tightening the stranglehold.
regardless of whether or not they killed small business, what they're doing is indeed criminal.
have you heard recently that they intend to try stamp out competition more aggressively?
that's overkill considering that people are being drawn in even more so due to lack of jobs, or just generally trying to spend less.
with brute force, they'll continue to stamp out competition and keep their profit margins ridiculously high. nobody will do anything because this is and has traditionally been a capitalist society. nothing will happen until wal-mart has in fact eliminated the competition, set up a monopoly, and is raising prices again.
I feel that it's my duty as a human being to fight against what they're doing.
as an American, you should be concerned that you're cost-cutting resource is only doing long-term harm to the economic situation.
