Hmmmm... Wal-Mart is having to increase it's prices. Obviously, there probably is not one single thing that we can blame this on, but, I will openly wonder about this.
1) Is this a symptom of inflation hitting from the monetary supply being flooded?
2) Is Wal-Mart getting less efficient because of it's size/management?
3) If Wal-Mart leads it's other competitors in pricing by over 10%, why are they still in business?
4) Is this going to happen for everyone else? Are they going to attempt to eat it in their bottom line?
Fun things to think about.
