3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark L. Burton on May 24, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a must-read for local and regional policy-makers and community leaders facing Wal-Mart related decisions and controversies. It's technical enough to offer up as concrete proof in policy discussions and, at the same time, accessible enough to appeal to a wide-ranging audience. Mostly, it seems fair-minded and balanced - one of the few Wal-Mart works where the author doesn't appear to have a dog in the fight.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Michael Hicks has authored a comprehensive study that provides a template for future studies of controversial economic issues. Unlike other offerings regarding Wal-Mart, Dr. Hicks has provided an unbiased, fact-driven analysis that disposes of unfounded myths while identifying specific problems created by the introduction of a national chain store with a tremendous amount of commercial strength into a local community. Dr. Hicks' work is both scholarly and readable and should serve as a source of significant guidance to both the academic and public policy community.

Format: Hardcover
It is clear that the author takes great care to provide insightful analysis of the effects that Wal-Mart stores produce in local economies. He deftly maneuvers through the political rhetoric associated with the Wal-Mart phenomenon to identify and accurately quantify the associated impacts. This examination provides the reader with a significant tool for eliminating the incorrect perceptions and clarifying the realities involved.
