We have come across an interesting blog post written by Sandesh on the likely impact of Bharati’s alliance with Wal-Mart on India and Indians.
We are glad to reproduce below the relevant excerpts:
1. World class stores with good customer service
2. Everyday Low Prices (hopefully)
3. Quality assortment of merchandise ( Not that Walmart has the best quality in US but they must be good for current Indian retail standards)
4. More jobs
5. More related jobs across the supply chain — Really an understatement. Imagine all the producers and their suppliers and so on.
