9780143038788: The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--and HowIt's Transforming the American Economy

Wal-Mart isn’t just the world’s biggest company, it is probably the world’s most written-about. But no book until this one has managed to penetrate its wall of silence or go beyond the usual polemics to analyze its actual effects on its customers, workers, and suppliers. Drawing on unprecedented interviews with former Wal-Mart executives and a wealth of staggering data (e.g., Americans spend $36 million an hour at Wal-Mart stores, and in 2004 its growth alone was bigger than the total revenue of 469 of the Fortune 500), The Wal-Mart Effect is an intimate look at a business that is dramatically reshaping our lives.

About the Author:

Charles Fishman has been a senior editor at the Orlando Sentinel and the News & Observer and is now a senior editor at Fast Company. In 2005 he won the prestigious Gerald Loeb Award for business journalism.

From AudioFile:

Do you shop at Wal-Mart, or avoid it like the plague? THE WAL-MART EFFECT may change your shopping habits, and it most certainly will affect your perception of economics and business practice today. Charles Fishman takes a hard look at supply, demand, and pricing, as well as business practice as developed by Sam Walton, and now his children. Alan Sklar brings his narrating experience in reading nonfiction to bear on this "tell all" book. Sklar approaches each revelation with fresh enthusiasm, even when Fishman's text is repetitive. Delving into Wal-Mart's secrets will change your perception of marketing and business forever. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
