for making this marketer’s wet dream a reality.
Very interesting article recommended to me by my good friend Grandmaster Lix. America’s Addiction and the New Economics of Strategy. We are addicted to consumption. Businesses are addicted to taking advantage of us. So what are we going to do? As my buddy Dong (he’s from North Korea) aptly stated during a discussion earlier “I’m going to mortgage my house to get my Gucci Bomb Shelter”. Sadly, I feel that I must do the same.
So I’ve somehow never been to a Wal-Mart in my life. Being a business school student, we discuss Wal-Mart a lot. I know all about its process innovations, its distribution amazingness, and its supplier rape. But stepping into the store for the first time was still very overwhelming. What doesn’t Wal-mart sell? Health insurance? Diving boards?
It must be great to be a member of this family:
I’ve spent a couple of hours perusing the Wal-Mart company site for a video we were shown in management class, but I can’t find it anymore. If anyone knows where I can track down the clip about vendors/suppliers selling their souls in Bentonville please give me a heads up.
