Edge Principles: Good Beats Evil


Special Wal-Mart edition. Do not miss.

I remember reading some rumblings about Wal-Mart considering getting into the health care business a while back.

It's a bit bizarre to say this, but I hope to God that they do it. I bet it would really work for so many people.

Good to know that consumer pressure finally had an effect. Now if we can just convince them to reduce their imports from a country that puts date rape drugs in our kids' toys.

And God help us if Walmart gets involved in providing health care industry. We don't need cheaper for-profit healthcare. We need to cut out the profit to make healthcare cheaper. I don't want a price-cutting company making decisions about what care they can afford to provide me to keep their "Always Low Prices".

Now if they want to start a pharmacy and do what the government OUGHT to be doing... negotiating wholesale drug prices with the manufacturers, I say go for it! Stick with retail, stay out of healthcare management.
