About

Wal-Mart is the world's largest retailer and the world's largest corporation. It is also the subject of some considerable controversy regarding claims that it is bad for small towns and treats its workers poorly.

Benefits

Wal-Mart does represent what might be called "retail technology" – a collection of "best practices" for getting everyday goods to the public at low prices – which does contribute significant value to a community. There may also be costs that play out in the long term or in more diffuse ways, however, and more data is needed in order to have a realistic idea of how the costs & benefits play out.
