Dialog on Walmart
Posted by Fred Tung

The debate over the merits of Walmart is hardly new (it's been done here at the Glom as well).  But I ran across a good email debate over at Slate entitled "Is Walmart good for the American working class?"  The debate is between economist Jason Furman and author-activist Barbara Ehrenreich, who worked as a new hire at Walmart as part of the research for her book Nickel and Dimed, which portrays life as a low-wage worker in the US.  Of particular interest, they fight about the empirical data--both its quality and meaning. 

Worth a read.
