So do things the Walmart way ? sell many things for very little money and make alot of money, well which is it ? is Walmart the most evil company ever or are they a model that we should be following ?

Go to the supermarket and take a look at anything from cleaners, to soda pop, to potato chips, to dog food, I bet the container is smaller than it was 2 years ago. Chips went from 200g to 180, to 170, to 160, and now they have a new super size bag, at triple the price that's 200g. Mr Clean went from a 1 L bottle, to an 843ml bottle to a 750 ml bottle. Orange juice is doing the same thing.

Its only in some liberal utopia dream land that you can increase costs of raw materials without showing an increase cost in the final product. In the real world that doesn't work.
