(Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N) will buy an additional $50 billion in U.S.-made products over the next decade in areas like sporting goods and high-end appliances in what the world's largest retailer called a bid to help boost the U.S. economy.
Wal-Mart, the largest private employer in the United States, also said on Tuesday it plans to hire 100,000 newly discharged veterans over the next five years, at a time when the U.S. unemployment rate is at 7.8 percent.

Or perhaps Walmart has a bunch of savy MBAs and PR people watching trends and making damn sure that
Walmart does something to counter the bad press they have been getting about their sweat shops overseas.
Still I applaud them for buying American made products; this should have been SOP long ago!
