    Wow! -- thank you for sharing Pancho, puts the perspectives I have been reflecting on into clear numbers. What are your thoughts on what can each of us do in addition to be the 'satyagrahis' by boycotting such ones. Love to hear everyone's thoughts.

    Well, Walmart's real weight comes from millions of needy (daily wagers) and greedy (bargain hunters) customers who flock to the stores.

    Prakash, if you haven't seen the movie The High Cost of Low Prices, please check it out. Whether or not you've seen it, you can organize film showings to inform the public. And every chance you get, let people know that quality and supporting your local economy is more important to you than convenience and cost.
