Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not so sure that in the proper conditions, the small shopkeeper is so much worse of than the Walmart employee. VietNam is only starting to have supermarkets, and when I see the small shopkeeper, the shop is essentially an extension of the house, rather than a place where "normal life" is put away eight hours a day. And the comparison between small farmer and factory worker doesn't hold that much here, either ; many factory workers go back to the family farm after a few years....
