Americans love a good bargian, that's why the crowded
parking lots at Wal-Marts.

However there is another side to this. As an article
in the current issue of Fast Company points out,
several of Wal-Mart's suppliers have been forced out
of business, have had to declare bankrupcy, and / or
move production off shore, because they couldn't
survive on the slim margins that Wal-Mart demanded.
