BOX 348-359 "Is Wal-Mart Good for America?," 2004
The retail chain Wal-Mart and the role the store plays in the American economy is explored in "Is Wal-Mart Good for America?." The documentary details the rise of Wal-Mart and how its ethos of cheap prices and high-volume sales lead to it becoming the largest retailer in the world. The film details how Wal-Mart’s size allows it to dictate manufacturing in the United States and China. The demands Wal-Mart places on American companies in lowering prices often leads to those companies looking overseas to China to exploit cheaper labor for lower production costs. Materials include interview transcripts, production bibles, research, correspondence, and notes.
