Guelph's recent struggle to keep Walmart from entering the city plays a major role in Mr Munger's film about the heavy-handed business practices of the world's largest retailer. The film also lays bare the costs that societies must bear for the supposed savings that the corporation claims to offer.
Yes, they chop pennies from the competitors advertised prices, but at what costs elsewhere? This is an eye-opening expose of the retail Goliath and the power they wield to control consumers, manufacturers and governments. Recommended viewing.
Andrew Munger will be present to introduce both screenings and will be available for a Q&A session following each screening.
