Question and answer
how has walmart contributed to the increase of globalization
Wal-Mart has been successful in revolutionizing the logistics of supply chain management in recent decades by taking advantage of Economic Globalization and the rise of information technology (Young, 2004). [ By revolutionizing supply management practices, Wal-Mart has changed the power relationship between suppliers and retailers and has put the retail industry in a position to dictate its demands to manufacturers (Cohn, 2005). In its quest for the lowest prices possible, Wal-Mart relies on two strategies: importing the majority of its supplies from low-wage countries especially China, and
pushing North American suppliers to lower their prices by improving efficiency and lowering their costs. Such practices have been blamed for the loss of manufacturing jobs in the United States as a result of relying on imported consumer goods and pushing businesses to move their operations overseas to take advantage of low-wage labour. Although by no means the only factor, powerful mass retailers such as Wal-Mart have significantly contributed to the rise of manufacturing in Asia, especially China, and the subsequent rise in trade with that region (Young, 2004). ]
