News & Opinion: The Wal-Mart Effect Part 2 with Charles Fishman
I decided to bring back Charles Fishman, author of The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--and How It's Transforming the American Economy.
In the paperback version of the book, Charles has added an afterword. In it, he writes about his visit to Wal-Mart headquarters. The company was not particularly helpful while he was writing the book, but they invite him to talk after they find out he is not as negative on the company as many other authors have been. Our interview covers what has happened with the book in the last year.
