Chilean salmon for $4.84 a pound

Global fishiness
How can Wal-Mart sell Chilean salmon for $4.84 a pound? An excerpt
from "The Wal-Mart Effect."

Editor's note: In 2006, the name Wal-Mart may have more polarizing power than any other corporate brand. The world's most powerful company is an economic juggernaut, political flashpoint and social
phenomenon. In "The Wal-Mart Effect," a thoughtful, comprehensive examination of how those famous "everyday low prices" are changing the world, Fast Company writer Charles Fishman offers up a compelling look at the company that, more than any other firm, is driving the global economy.
