A train company? Hmm, India--there is something reassuringly quaint about that...

We could cut the size of defense almost in half by arming the walmart employees and making them the reserve.

I'm not sure I understand the point of the first and second pictures, or how the two are related. Can you expand a bit?

I don't think they're supposed to be related, they're just recent Daily Charts from the Economist.

The two biggest employers in the world require uniform dress, as well the number 3 & 4, which are the biggest private employers.

I wonder if huge organizations are helped in their existence, by requiring a uniform look on their human assets?

I suspect so. Military organizations, to promote groupthink, and to help identify who you might be shooting at. US forces in Vietnam sometimes had a great of trouble identifying the enemy, as they do now in some middle eastern countries.

Large retailers may be interested in making employees more easily recognizable by customers.
