When The Growth Phase Ends

The growth phase of Walmart is long over. I have often written about the one near me: my Walmart ! It is a dump peopled with odd entities. The greeters particularly are like the Sand People.

Let's find the country's worst Walmart.
Start in Michigan and read the reviews. The one on Mound Road in Sterling Heights sounds unusually awful.

After we get done with this sophomoric humor part, why is it that our system has these cycles? This is not "creative destruction", rather it is "planned obsolescence" in the sense that as much has been milked from the system as is possible.

In the meantime, the small town stores have disappeared.

Well done!
