Economies of Scale...Look it up.. Walmart buys in volume and cheap from China....

Net Flix deals in volume and everyone else is lowering their prices to compeat with the new niche video renters....There is your new competitor...Yahoo is not far behind..look for MS and Apple to do the same... (and no, I'm not a good speller)

Wal-mart is not lowering it's prices..it has always been cheap..

"Economies of Scale...Look it up."

Thank you. That is part of the problem here. Most Americans are illiterate when it comes to economics, even the basics.

This ignorance adds fuel to fire for politicians who want to blame Bob the Baker for making a living by taking advantage of George.

Why does Wal-Mart sell its stuff cheap? Why don't they just increase their prices 50% and make a lot more money?
