I have a friend from India. When he (and his family) came here they stocked up on electronics because, as he explained, they don't have large companies like Wal-Mart and such items can cost twice that in the US.
So you would think a country like India, with hundreds of millions of poor, would benefit greatly if a company could come in and overnight boost their purchasing power, and thus, standards of living by 20-50% (depending on which items you'd like to compare).
Well, you are right. It WOULD benefit pretty much every Indian. It WOULD be the single largest advancement and improvement in the world of economics this year. But those socialists and ignoramouses are (as you would expect) attaching so many strings to Wal-Mart setting up shop, they've now scrubbed their plans to expand into India.
This is how leftists unintentionally hurt those they so hypocritically claim to want to help.
