The Wal-Mart effect

According to Charles Fishman, author of the 2006 book 'The Wal-Mart Effect' (which is not overly critical of the mega-corporation), 90 per cent of Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart store, and 100 million Americans shop at Wal-Mart once a week.

There's an interesting article on Criticisms of Wal-Mart at Wikipedia. There's also a number of books that are critical of Wal-Mart, such as 'The Case Against Wal-Mart', 'How Wal-Mart is Destroying America and the World' and 'The Bully of Bentonville'.

Also of related interest is David C Korten's bestseller, 'When Corporations Rule the World'.
