Summary

There is No shortage of statistics testifying to Wal-Mart's mammoth scale: Wal-Mart is the world's largest corporation, the world's largest private employer, and China's eighth largest export market. Wal-Mart: The Face of Twenty-First-Century Capitalism is an ambitious attempt to get beyond the bare facts of this corporate giant, uncover a hidden history of the Arkansas-based corporation, and dissect Wal-Mart's business model, social impact, and transformative role in the global economy.
