Walmart Is Now Under Investigation in Mexican “Bribery Aisle” Scandal

Wal-Mart de México, which is Wal-Mart’s largest foreign subsidiary, had been routinely resorting to bribery in order to basically speed up and to obtain permits, licenses, zoning approvals, on a fairly massive scale all across the country, and with a very specific strategic purpose, which was to accelerate Wal-Mart’s growth in Mexico. And for those who don’t know, Wal-Mart 20 years ago was not much of a presence in Mexico. Today, it’s really hard to overstate just how thoroughly they dominate commerce in Mexico. It’s more than just the Sam’s Clubs and the Wal-Marts that you see in the United States. It’s department stores. It’s restaurants. It’s banks.

I’d love to have the means and access to have my favorite attorney/accountant take a hard look at Wal-Mart’s charitable arm, the one that’s pledged $2B to “wipe out hunger,” as promoted on Tavis Smiley’s PBS show.

I suspect the pro would find that Wal-Mart intends to wipe out the hungry, with the Tarzeen garment factory fire being just one approved method.
