This will be a short post about a big subject, but I was reading an article in Newsweek about the recent Walmart scandals a few days ago and the article said that Walmart has done research and concluded that only 8% of the adult population has a hostile disdain for the Walmart corporation.
Basically, the article said that while a lot of other people feel uncomfortable with Walmart's policies of hiring people part time to avoid providing health benefits, etc., their desire to pay low prices trumps that sense of discomfort and they continue to shop at Walmart.
So basically Walmart's corporate strategy is based on this!

It does often seem like people are only driven by price and self-interest. I wonder what affect, if any, the movie Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price will have on that thinking. Will there be a point where the majority of shoppers care where their money goes and who it hurts/helps? We can only hope.
