Wal-Mart Destroys Society -- No Fooling

A has negative implications. The study concluded that the presence of Wal-Mart depresses stocks in local communities
* Communities with Wal-Mart stores had fewer non-profit groups and social capital-generating associations (such as churches, political organizations, and business groups) per capita than those that did not.
* Wal-Mart's presence depresses civic participation, namely voter participation

Yeah? And I just thought it was because of all the cheap and tacky teen clothing they've been selling lately.
