Abstract

Despise or admire, Wal-Mart is not to be ignored. This megalith of a company, consistently making the number one grade on the Fortune 1000 list, is a tour de force that shows no sign of slowing down - much less stopping. With stores in every niche of the world, this behemoth has already influenced this century more than is measurable. Considering the 2011 sales, and the relatively young CEO, one can only assume a continuum of the same.

As the world bites its fingernails hoping for an economic shift, Wal-Mart has been quick to take advantage of their brand image of being an Everyman's affordable alternate shopping spot.
