Corporate social responsibility - Walmart
Economists define costs in terms of opportunities forgone. What opportunities are forgone by Wal-Mart's "everyday low price" marketig strategy? Who pays the costs of Wal-Mart's low prices?
Wal-Mart's wages are above the legally required minimum wage, and health benefits are not legally mandated. Are there reasons for a business to take actions not required by law but which might reduce profits?
