The Wal-Mart Effect, How the World’s Most Powerful Company Really Works–and How It’s Transforming the American Economy by Charles Fishman. I read this book several years ago, and now as I re-read it, something just jumped out at me as we try to eneact gun safety measures. Walmart does not want us to know how Walmart affects the country–employment, wages, healthcare, and quality of goods and services. And the NRA does not want the government collecting statistics on gun violence. That tells me that both Walmart and the NRA have something to hide, something that they fear the American voter might use to decide to support restrictions on how both operate.
