In 2004, there was over 26,600,000 square feet of empty Wal-Marts in the United States. (and probably more now!)


(I’m watching a documentary on Wal-Mart, and it’s actually quite interesting, albeit depressing

Update: Here’s another statistic:
Cost for a Wal-Mart Factory Worker in China to assemble an item: $0.18
Retail cost of same item at Wal-Mart: $14.96.

Ugh. Amount imported from China in 2004: $18 BILLION.
