The Wal-Mart You Don’t Know

An unflattering expose of Wal-Mart's business practices – an interesting read. For those who don't have the time, here is the most disturbing quote.

"Wal-Mart, which in the late 1980s and early 1990s trumpeted its claim to Buy American, has doubled its imports from China in the past five years alone, buying some $12 billion in merchandise in 2002. That's nearly 10% of all Chinese exports to the United States."

That's right, 10% of ALL imports from China go through Wal-Mart.

Think about that next time someone you know is outsourced.
