Wal-Mart in New York?
With Wal-Mart trying to get a foothold in the New York metro area, many people are taking sides on whether Wal-Mart will benefit or harm New Yorkers. Frontline had a great episode a few years back called Is Wal-Mart Good for America that did a great job of examining Wal-Mart's policies. Also check out the national bestseller The Wal-Mart Effect, which also does a great job of examining Wal-Mart's policies and practices in addition to examining the grand changes Wal-Mart has had on the American consumer and business. Also read about the education donations Wal-Mart has made to New York City schools and the controversies surrounding them here and here.
