Wal-Mart de Mexico was an aggressive and creative corrupter, offering large payoffs to get what the law otherwise prohibited, an examination by The New York Times found.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
I think that some in Mexico oppose this project so fiercely, because by building a Walmart on their historical land, is affecting their culture and those pyramids is what represent the people from Teotihuacán. I personally feel that Walmart was acting like the big powerful institution that they are and didn’t care about a historical landmark. Walmart only agenda was to make money. I bet if it was in the United States Walmart wouldn’t even dare to build on a historical landmark. United States have laws against situation like this one.
Wal-Mart is one of the greatest stores that have been around for decades. Wal-Mart has helped many families in the United States. It is time it goes global and Mexico is a great starter point because it is close to home base and it can help the people of Mexico get jobs so violence could decrease and not have so many deaths. But I also wonder how Wal-Mart was able to expand to Mexico.
That 52k bribe really worked because Mexico really needs it. The way the Mexican economy is going anything will help. But adding a Wal-Mart might destroy the calm ness of the city because the roads are going to be more congested with all the cars going in and out of the Wal-Mart. People might have to relocate to other areas if they do not want to be part of that noise and traffic it will create.
This is just another crime one could add to the list of Wal-Mart's illegal activities. They are all about making a profit, and do not care what they do in order to enlarge it. This is not only legally wrong but also morally wrong. These are some of the most ancient areas in the world. Putting a Wal-Mart smack in the middle of it is surely going to affect the area, both ecologically and economically. However, if decimating an ancient land means adding to their mountain of profit, so be it. It is very easy to see Wal-Mart is guilty of crimes like this, but unfortunately their huge international market presence is what keeps them from being convicted of anything.
