Why Capitalism Always Wins

Because the PC villain will become the hero.

Excerpts from: Why we don't hate Wal-Mart anymore
, by Hank Gilman, deputy managing editor, Fortune

Let's go to the numbers. If you did a database search . . . there were some 47 stories in 2006 with the words "evil" within ten words of a "Wal-Mart" mention. So far in 2009: only two. Of all stories with at least two mentions of Wal-Mart, there were more than 14,000 in 2006 and just under 5,000 this year.
