Via Insty, some thoughts on Walmart vs FEMA in the Katrina response.

One line hit me a little hard: “Wal-Mart ‘arrived in the New Orleans area long before FEMA and had the supplies that the community needed,’ writes Horwitz.”

When you think about it, the faster Wal-Mart arrives, the more money they make. The faster that the Government arrives, the more they have to spend to get there.

Seems kind of obvious when you put it that way.
