The Carnival of Wal-Mart

The Business of America is Business: The Carnival of Wal-Mart I

The Business of America is Business website is hosting a Carnival of Wal-mart this week. The carnival consists of links to several articles and blogs on the Internet both for and against Wal-mart.

I know, it's hard to believe that folks are 'against' or 'for' a business, but these articles aren't by total unknowns in the media. One of these folks is Howard Dean's former campaign manager, Joe Trippi, quite the outspoken guy.

The people in these articles have some strong views. One of them thinks the left is out to get Wal-mart. Another thinks that folks should boycott Wal-mart.

All in all, you'd have to pick your own side. Me? I'm not for or against Wal-mart, but I am for doing good business. My experience with Wal-mart has been loads better than K-Mart, and the same as Target overall. Do I buy all my named brand electronics there? No, but I don't buy them at Target either. There are stores for speciality stuff. For all the day to day things like underwear though, heck, I go where I get the best value.

If you want a laugh, and some dangerous thought, go check out the link.
