We get it. Falling Prices can do no wrong.

The job of any retailer is to deliver a wide array of products with as little cost as possible added to the suppliers price. Wal Mart excels at their mission.

And, despite prompting, you remain completely oblivious to (or just dismissive of) all other issues here.

So you'd be okay if, say, Alibaba opened giant stores coast to coast... as long as their prices were lower than WM?

Glad you can buy fake tupperware cheap, though.

I am ok with any corp obeying labor laws. Wal Mart does so.

As a customer, I support the retailers most efficient at maintaining low prices. Wal Mart does that.

I am sure tonight, just as at every WM visit, I will again be pleased at the products and prices I obtain from my shopping experience.

I notice you carefully avoided the second part of the question. Since the only obligation of a retailer, at all, is to provide the best values for customers, I'm sure you'd have no problem with a massive invasion of a Chinese-owned, -staffed and -run competitor that waives, ignores or is exempt from more business requirements than WM, as long as they're cheaper and you really like shopping there.

Wrong, if any employer fails to obey DOL and IRS laws, they should be severely penalized.

Now if any retailer wants to come here and obey all such laws, they should be welcome with open arms.

PS: The peasant insurance laws should be eliminated, as they cause no harm to employer or employee.

You rigidly persist in missing/ignoring/dismissing the point. Done here. Happy shopping.

I can only conclude that 50 years ago, this crowd would have been vehemently defending Dow Chemicals, because they were so profitable and employed so many people.
