VIRGINIA POSTREL ON THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS OF WAL-MART:
BTW, Postrel, on her Dynamist.com Web log, says:
WAL-MEX: Wal-Mart de Mexico, a.k.a. Wal-Mex and already that country’s largest retailer, has big expansion plans. It will add 67 stores over the next year and a half. Wal-Mart’s growth is both a cause and an effect of Mexico’s rising (by fits and starts) standard of living.
