The Wal-Mart Effect by Charles Fishman


The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--and How It's Transforming the American Economy
by Charles Fishman is an examination of Wal-Mart's impact on society. It looks at the positives that include lower prices for consumers, along with the negatives that come with those prices. For example, salmon is only $4.84 at Wal-Mart, but there is a reason that they can pull off such a low price.

The Good
The Bad
Final Opinion

It's the best book I've come across on the topic. If you're interested in Wal-Mart's impact on society, The Wal-Mart Effect is a worthwhile read.
