Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

A new documentary, "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price" examines the effect that governmental subsidies to Wal-Mart have on local communities.

"The economic impact of these subsidies on small businesses is given a human face in one powerful segment of Robert Greenwald's new documentary, "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price". The sweetheart deals given to two Wal-Mart Supercenters in Hamilton, Missouri undermined Red Esry's four family-owned grocery stores. Esry watched his sales plunge as soon as the Supercenters opened -- he couldn't compete with Wal-Mart's prices and lost almost half of his business virtually overnight."
