The Local Economic Impact of Wal-Mart

by Michael J. Hicks


"Recommended." - CHOICE

..."a valuable addition to the literature, with special value as a compendium of works on Wal-Mart." - Eastern Economic Journal

"Most books on Wal-Mart come down clearly for or against Wal-Mart within their first ten pages. The Local Economic Impact of Wal-Mart is not one of those books. Instead, Hicks carefully presents evidence on the in-fluence of Wal-Mart on a variety of issues ... a clear and level-headed approach to a divisive public policy issue from a distinctly regional perspective ... anyone interested in the impact of Wal-Mart on local economies will benefit from reading The Local Economic Impact of Wal-Mart, regardless of their current feelings toward the retailer." - The Journal of Regional Analysis and Policy

"[The author] is interested in facts. He asks the right questions and provides the answers that thorough research suggests. He surveys the weight of evidence and analysis in the existing literature, and adds some informed insights of his own. This is what good economists are supposed to do. There are no wild claims or hidden agendas here. This book is a triumph of empiricism over mysticism." - Lawrence W. Reed, President, Mackinac Center for Public Policy, Midland, Michigan
