It's Friday Night! Party Time! Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!
This weeks film is Frontline's Is Walmart Good For America?
We have quite a number of posts on offshore outsourcing. Walmart's cutthroat retailing, cheap wages and importation of goods from China shows a fundamental problem with globalization and how we are creating a race to the bottom for working people around the globe. This film is from 2005 and shows the pressure manufacturers are under due to the power of Walmart and their business practices. Please consider contributing to Frontline for they have produced some of these best, most in depth documentaries on economics out there. We need more of them!
