An interesting article from TomPaine.com about how CostCo stores are succeeding and posting a healthy profit by not doing it the Wal-Mart way. Full article.

That if you put more dollars into people's pockets, they can buy more things, thus stimulating the economy? Think they'll finally get it?? Me neither.
