St. Wal-Mart Deserves the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize
And that was $1 billion in only 18 months!! So while politicians and pundits in Washington fret about 41 million Americans without health insurance, and dream up the next grandiose government-based health care reform, the most effective health care solutions may be right around the corner at your local Wal-Mart, which offers affordable $4 prescriptions and affordable health care clinics (now in 12 states).
And as Steve Horwitz points out, the savings to consumers actually exceed $1 billion because Wal-Mart's $4 drug plan was matched my many of its competitors (Kroger and Publix, etc.).
Here's a case for Wal-Mart getting the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize (via Austrian Economists), for lifting so many people out of poverty, benefiting so many poor people with "everyday low prices," selling prescription drugs that are almost free ($4), lowering inflation, and creating more than a million jobs.
