Teaser re New Wal-Mart Movie

OK, I squeaked out a few minutes this morning to watch the first 10 minutes of “Wal-mart – The High Cost of Low Price.”

My initial reaction is positive, at least in the sense that this looks like a reasonable teaching tool, a good movie to generate discussion in a classroom, etc.
The opening sequence shows CEO Lee Scott rallying the troops with a very polished speech to an annual meeting of employees.
The next 10 plus minutes are about the effect of a new Wal-Mart on a particular small, American town. It’s an effective sequence of interviews with simple, well-spoken “normal folks,” about the effect of Wal-Mart on their community.
Stay tuned for a full report.
