This documentary explores the relationship between US job losses and the American consumer's insatiable desire for bargains by looking at the way Wal-Mart does business. Historically the most powerful companies in America were manufacturers such as General Motors and General Electric. Now global retailers have taken over that role and as the world's largest company the retail chain Wal-Mart has extraordinary power and influence. The founder of Wal-Mart, Sam Walton, created the formula which has lead the company to success, buy cheap, sell for less than your competitor and make a profit on high volume and fast turnover. Walton also dreamed up the idea of the 'opening price point' which is to price an item very cheaply in each department of the store to attract customers to buy other goods. When Wal-Mart started it was a regional player which had to compete with national players so it went overseas to look for a cheap supply of goods. Despite running a 'Buy American' campaign in the late '80s low cost imports from Asia became a vital component of Wal-Mart's low opening price strategy. Professor Gary Gereffi from Duke University says that 80% of Wal-Mart's 6000 suppliers now come from China. By Wal-Mart's own estimate it imports (US) 15 billion dollars of Chinese goods a year. In 2003 America had a ($US) 120 billion trade deficit with China. Larry Mishel, President of the Economic Policy Institute, says America has lost a million jobs to China since the 1990s.
