And one of these days he might start shopping his local small businesses again, and there will be jobs there, and the profits will stay in the community and local families will flourish on family wages and benefits and taxpayers can quit subsidizing big-box infrastructure, and the barren Main Streets in the towns in the Midwest will come alive again -- that is what can happen when a real free market works without a predatory monopoly, like Wal-Mart in its midst.

Wal-Mart New U.S. Chief Faces Empty Shelves, Grumpy Shoppers
From the link:
Empty shelves, grumpy customers, long lines at the register: These are just some of the challenges facing Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT)’s new U.S. chief.
Greg Foran, who takes charge Aug. 9, inherits a chain wedded to an outdated big-box model, struggling to boost sales in its stores and online, and losing customers because it can’t keep shelves adequately stocked. The sluggish U.S. performance contributed to lower-than-projected sales and profit in the quarter that ended April 30. Wal-Mart’s profit forecast for the current quarter also came in lower than analysts’ estimates.
By naming Foran, a 53-year-old New Zealander who previously ran the chain’s Asia operations and has worked at Wal-Mart only four years, Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon is betting a relative newcomer can revive a company losing relevance in a world increasingly dominated by Amazon.com Inc.
What do you know -- they outsourced yet another American job? The new "U.S. Chief" is a New Zealander.
What a company! Can they be as oblivious as they are arrogant?
