Mark Thoma posted a study of the effects of Wal-mart on local economies by economists at the Minneapolis Fed. It is fun, but the go-to woman for this stuff is Emek Basker.

Now would probably be a good time to start hording WalMart and 99 Cent Store stock. (what else does well in a major recession? Food commodities? Supermarkets?)

After you get one or two lined up and you start to use them successfully, watch what happens: They will tell their friends, who will tell their friends, and so on. It’s human nature to brag at cocktail parties or at the gym about what a great investment you just made. Before you know it, you will have all the funds you need by the David lindahl scam, and your business will explode!
