Religious readers may be interested in this article on christian capitalism. Particularly, it discusses Wal-Mart's foray into christian books and videos, and how that will affect smaller christian stores. I find this interesting because I know many religious people patronize religious businesses, and I wonder if churches will enlighten their congregations as to this situation and encourage them not to buy religious stuff from Wal-Mart. When dealing with groups that have very strong values, sometimes price is not the key reason for a purchase. This can significantly alter business strategy.
