House GOP Doesn’t Listen Any Better than Walmart

Earlier this month I wrote that Walmart doesn’t help its PR efforts when the company acts in a manner that only serves to reinforce its reputation as the Simon Legree of retail. (Details here.) In this instance an Ohio store had a display in the employee break room asking for donations ...

Walmart Encourages Grinch Accusations

Walmart is a corporation that generates strong opinion. Unions — and their wholly–owned subsidiary the Democrat Party — view Walmart as a rapacious corporation run by brutal overseers whose overriding goal is exploiting the working class. Many Republican officeholders view Walmart as a corporation run by a bunch of cheap so–and–sos who won’t make large campaign contributions and hire refugees ...

Walmart Corporate (CC)

Walmart didn’t do as well as expected, so that has caused several other retail outlets to drop their sales and earnings expectations for the upcoming quarter. The result has been at least a little nervousness on Wall Street, and a less-than-rosy view of the U.S. economic recovery. The New York Times reports: “There is a certain segment of the population ...

The 2012 election is currently in a dead heat. Americans are evenly split with 46% favoring President Obama and 45% favoring Mitt Romney.  This current election cycle just crossed the 1 billion dollar mark and 9% of the electorate is still undecided.   One of those groups that can tip the balance and could pose a threat to Obama’s re-election bid ...

South of the Border, Down Washington Way

Doing business in the US and Mexico has a number of similarities, although the medium of exchange is sometimes different.
