Wal-Mart Eyes Russia

Karl Marx once opined that capitalism, if left unrestrained, would reshape the world in its own image. Eternal Remont ponders this wisdom following WalMart's announcement to enter Russia's "growing consumer nation."

Ever since the “супермаркет” became ubiquitous, and no civilized Moscow apartment was complete without an ÄNGA modular shelving solution from Ikea, we assume it was only a matter of time before Russians learned to love their friendly neighborhood “вал-март.”

Now that we think of it, the doomsday cultists may be on to something.
