Episode Summary

EDIT
A Debate: Is Wal-Mart Good for America?
AIRED:
Wal-Mart is in many ways a symbol of capitalism, its efficiency the envy of corporations the world over. Its economies of scale have made everyday goods more affordable for millions of Americans - a point that might be brushed aside by the more affluent but that is essential to the lives of working class families across the country.On the other hand, Wal-Mart employs questionable labor practices while offering low wages to its workers. Its ruthless business practices squeeze suppliers within an inch of their lives, and the opening of a Wal-Mart store in your neighborhood may force local merchants out of business to be replaced by a 'big box' warehouse with little invested in the community.Watch the Hudson Union Society take on the Yale Political Union in this exciting debate!moreless
