Although many people say that Wal-Mart is bad for America, you can actually argue that it is very good for most Americans.
The reason for this is that the story gives Americans the goods that they want at prices that are really quite low. To many Americans, that is very important. Most Americans are quite eager to get various kinds of goods without having to pay a lot for them. If this were not true, Wal-Marts would be closing all over the place and people would shop at places that were more expensive.
So Wal-Mart gives us what we want-- it allows us to save money.
