Comment: Why is Wal-Mart successful?

(See in situ)

Why is Wal-Mart successful?

Because it gives consumers exactly what they want, it responds to financial incentive, when it serves the customer well it profits, when it screws up it takes a loss.

Wal-Mart is dependent on your voluntary association with it.

The State on the other hand doesn't have a profit and loss mechanism, after all, government isn't wasting it's money, it's wasting YOUR money which it steals from you at the point of a gun.

Where Wal-Mart caters to your needs in order to get you to voluntarily spend your money with them, the State coerces you against your will to get your money, and has no interest in satisfying your wants and needs, it's only interest is in it's own growth and pursuit of power.
