A roll of Bounty towels is the exact same product whether purchased in a convenience store or at a cheaper price at Walmart.John Galt, "Financially secure people do not reach that status by overpaying for brand-name goods that they can buy cheaper at Walmart." No, they 'get that way' by believing that they are buying cheaper products from Walmart while in denial that Walmart dumps the higher costs of making 'cheaper' products on to the poorest countries in the world where the slave labor sweatshops are located . Poor countries that operate these sweatshops for Walmart and other companies that off-shore jobs pay the lion's share of the operating costs for Walmart while Walmart keeps the bulk of the profit .
Conversely, some of the highest priced department stores in the country sell products made in Asian sweatshops.
Your argument defies all logic.
