The wonders of Walmart et al.

Having been dealing with big box retailers for a while, I have learned that the general public likes to suck and blow when it comes to saving money on their consumer products.

While the public loves lower prices, they often complain about the tactics and methods used by the behemoth retailers used to keep prices down. If anyone ever wants to see the other side (i.e. the suppliers who make sure the product hits the shelves), I can give you a few names, it could be enough to make you consider ever shopping at any of these places again.

What is ironic is that many of the small suppliers who work with the big box retailers fit in the exact demographic these retailers go after. Maybe the average consumer should get themselves a pair of C-IN2 underwear and spend their dollars elsewhere if they don't like the modus operandi.

Much thanks,

Part of the issue with the problems facing Africa is that they are taken by some people in the west as some cause d'jour.

A reason to have a concert and move on. The issue of African debt must be dealt with by African governments first (i.e corruption), before creditors can just start erasing debt
