Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well - it's much easier to industrialise wealth extraction at larger scales.

It's also worth asking how many 'productive' employees were off-shored to happy lands of cheap wages and minimal employer obligation.

And of course 'growth' isn't always a social benefit. WalMart may be 'efficient', but taken as a whole - especially when you include the political leanings of the family who own it - it's hardly a social good overall.

Especially not for some of its suppliers.
