    Everyone Should Read This Book

    This book articulated what I already instinctively knew was true. Walmart is truly destroying small town America. I live in a small town that has charming shops and many small local businesses. There is a Walmart 5 miles away and since it arrived, the businesses are closing one by one and taking with them the charm of the town. Every American should read this book.

    The beginning of a communist america and roots of an Authoritarian regime

    Books like these are what¿s the leading the campaign for collectivized health care and ¿the equal distribution of wealth¿ maybe Bill Quinn should put down the communist manifesto and pick up the wealth of nations. Every argument in this book against Wal-Mart is made with out even a basic understanding of economics and the fact that Wal-Mart Increases capital and production and makes more jobs than it could ever take away, and that mom and pop stores were dieing long before Wal-Mart came around. When Wal-Mart comes into to an new town you don't see an economic reccesion you see an economic boom. Wal-Mart does not have a monopoly on anything and it never will, and even if they had the capibility to create one the goverment would step and split up just like they've done in the past. Wal-Mart makes the lower class middle class, and it makes the middle class upper middle class.
