Haters of Wal-Mart wanted it gone: Now they complain of “food deserts”!


Just as Michael Moore complained when GM was there and then complained because GM left, haters of Wal-Mart are now complaining that Wal-Mart’s departure from certain neighborhoods is creating “food deserts”! See the Associated Press’s article here.

The “food desert” argument is a claim that poor neighborhoods in certain cities are devoid of high-quality grocery supermarkets. (Those same neighborhoods, of course, are often inhospitable places for grocery retailers, due to combinations of high taxes, high crime, poor customers and low profits.)
