While Wal-Mart is known for its well-engineered business model it has however created a split amongst many, who either love or hate the super store. Personally I don't see how they could undercut their employees (wages, healthcare, etc.) while they continue to report growth and increasing profits.

John, - "..60 percent of the families in the US live on 25 percent of America's income.."
This seems to ring true for many if not most countries. As such affordability of goods is going to be a major marketing force by itself and in addition to popular themes on products. Indeed the various shopping apps available make things a lot better since you can maximize the value of money with smart shopping.
Something else caught my eye..did you say EVP and CMO? are we starting to see the CMO role slotted into other roles as an add-on? would be interesting.
