Shop at costco they pay living wages. Also the standard of living in China keeps increasing. In fact they have the fasted increasing standard of living in the world (granted they werent too far off from africa a generation ago) .

If it surpasses the one of Europe and America it will be interesting to see how it will be framed that a communist country has the highest standard of living.

Don't know if it's going to work, but it feels like a conspiracy.

Well, if wal-mart is investing 250B into jobs, then they must be expecting a return in the trillions. What could be so profitable? War?

Well if we wen't to war , I'm not so sure Walmart would get larger portion of those Trillions.

I don't think this is eluding to war ,but I lean more towards the two following sceneries:
1. PR Stunt: No money will be spent and no jobs will be brought back.

2. Possible US economy collapse: If they spent that much money then they have some financial reasons to justify it.

Although possible I dont see them taking care of their US consumer base as a priority 1 ,as they are a Global corporations . While its obvious that your biggest consumer base is important, so are your operating cost. I see them having other options like manufacturing in Africa and keeping their world consumer base intact by still providing cheap labor, until the US economy comes back.

Regardless, I find it pretty fascinating when the trend of outsourcing was perfected by them and now they wan't to invest to undo their investment.

I was wondering if there are any updates on Walmarts pledge to spend 250 BILLION to bring back jobs to the US.

However it appears they are a little secretive on the progress

Walmart won't specify where it stands on progress toward its $250 billion goal, other than to say the company is on target.

Although some interesting additional details of the plan was released

The original wording in the ad stated:

Over the next ten years, we're putting $250 billion to work to help create new manufacturing jobs in America

Now It appears that has slightly changed to indicate that the $250 Billion will be used to purchase $250 Billion worth of US made goods.

Walmart says it wants to spend $250 billion on American-made products by 2023, and says buying from U.S. producers is good business.

Here are some announcements and US companies they are working with:
