Walmart Sells American
A Boston Consulting Group survey finds that more than 80% of Americans are willing to pay more for Made in the USA products. In conjunction with the National Retail Federation, Walmart U.S. president and CEO Bill Simon recently identified a three-prong strategy to help grow America's economy — employ Americans, employ American soldiers especially, and buy from American producers. Right now, two out of three products sourced by Walmart come from domestic suppliers. Simon pledged that Walmart would spend $50 billion on U.S. products over the next 10 years.
