When people think of Wal-mart they think of a place they can go to buy quality goods for inexpensive prices. In a falling economy that can be helpful. As we have heard in basic economics, "There is no such thing as a free lunch." What does Walmart really do for our country? Does this corporation take action, no matter the cost, to bring the U.S. low prices? Does Walmart stay committed to their advertisements and provide this country with employment opportunities? You be the judge...do you think Walmart saves this nation money or do you think this corporation adds to the problem?
