86. I suppose it depends on your point of view....

of "capitalism at its finest." For me, this would mean healthy competition between competing companies for both the external as well as the internal customers. Walmart is unique in its predatory practices. Grocery chains that have existed for decades suddenly find that they cannot compete when Walmart moves into the neighborhood. It offers the cheapest grocery prices together with a shopping experience that provides everything you need in one location. They do this by making less profit off of their grocery business than they do from selling other cheap products made by oppressive regimes. This is an artificial advantage further complicated by distribution deals and tax advantages that are the result of crony capitalism. Walmart has no competition.
