In this 40-minute interview on Wisconsin Public Radio, ILSR’s Stacy Mitchell talks with host Joy Cardin about how the growing domination of mega-retailers, like Wal-Mart and Home Depot, is detrimental to society, but not irreversible. She also discusses her new book, Big-Box Swindle: The True Cost of Mega-Retailers and the Fight for America’s Independent Businesses (Beacon Press).
Stacy Mitchell is co-director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, and directs its Independent Business Initiative, which partners with a wide range of allies to implement policies that counter concentrated power and strengthen local economies.
