In What Manner is Wal-Mart Influencing America? – 54 Pages

Do Wal-Mart’s business practices raise or lower our standard of living? How? Why do you think this is so?  Is Wal-Mart’s business strategy fair and equitable to all parties? Why or why not? What are ways that a government of any country can lessen the risks to encourage people to start businesses (entrepreneurship)?

What should be changed in our capitalistic society to assist social entrepreneurs in becoming successful? Why? Would strict capitalists recommend such changes in order to accommodate social entrepreneurs? How?…

The risks of a social entrepreneur are very similar to those of any other type of entrepreneur in that there has to be a demand for the serves they provide.  I can see that cultural museums would fall under this category.  If there is not a desire to learn about that culture for example by people that are descendant of the culture in question, then it would be an unsound investment of time, energy and resources.  This is the same as if a new startup whose goal is purely financial would not form unless there was a desire from the population for the serves or product…
