Frank,

I recently purchased your audio CD program-- and I'm using the e-book already, too. Great advice.

However, I must disagree with you here. I think the point you're missing is Wal-mart is cheaper because they are shifting costs on to the taxpayers. They force communities to subsidize their stores through tax breaks and artificially cheap labor, which then devalues the communities in the surrounding area.

To use another example, say a pharmaceutical company was beating out the competition by simply dumping their waste into the river. Sure, they're selling a cheaper product and people enjoy it, but the company has simply shifted the cost of clean up onto the local community.

Long story short, goods basically have a set cost, and Walmart makes a lot of money by bearing as little of it as possible.
