Walmart is going to

Expand into health care. Why would they do that? Unless there is money to be had doing it. I wonder ifthey are thinking Universal health Care would be a cash cow for them. Just a thought.

1. The same reason Amazon expands into.... well, everything.

Once you absolutely monopolize the sale of X to community A, you need to either find a different community (i.e., B) to sell X, OR you need to sell something else (i.e., Y) to community A, if you want to maintain revenue growth -- which is apparently the insatiable appetite which drives them.

2. I've joked about it on DU before.

How long before we are calling some scruffy fresh-out-of-high-school kid wearing a white coat "Doctor" as he straps us into an Artificial Intelligence diagnostic chair.

Don't worry, this won't hurt a bit!



WalMart medical school is going to be a trip.



Great to see you around, Panther!
