"Is Wal-Mart Good for America?" - Preview

  • Aired: 11/16/2004

  • Rating: NR
A look at two contrasting images: one of empty Ohio storefronts, where local TV manufacturing plants have closed down; the other of a sea of high rises in the China boomtown of Shenzhen. The connection? Wal-Mart. Some credit Wal-Mart’s focus on low costs with helping contain U.S. inflation, but others say it drives production of American consumer goods overseas, resulting in problems here at home.
