Do Walmart's competitors have a right to sue the company for predatory pricing?

  • I Think They Should

    I believe Wal-Mart's competitors should have the right to sue the company for predatory pricing. Wal-Mart has been known to twist product creators arms into under selling their products at massively lower prices based on volume. They have also created a make or break world for new inventions, essentially stifling new product creating when inventors aren't accepted into Wal-Mart's little world. I feel like actions against Wal-Mart would help the masses.

  • It's free trade.

    No, Walmart's competitors do not have a right to suet he company for predatory pricing, because WalMart simply does a better job of providing a product to consumers at a lower price. Walmart should not have to raise their prices just so that mom and pop shops can stay in business. The best competitor should win.

  • Competition is a part of business

    No, I do not believe that Walmart's competitors have the right to sue the company for predatory pricing. Consumers are looking for the lowest price technically acceptable (LPTA) products and if Walmart is able to provide these items, then they should be able to do so. Other companies should be able to price match in the same way, especially some of the bigger companies complaining.

  • A great store

    No, the competitors do not have a right to sue the company for predatory pricing. Walmart is cheap so that they can help out the United States citizens, and also sell a lot of products. If someone disagrees with the prices, they can just cut theirs to match those of Walmart.

  • Free Market Principles

    Wal-Mart has every right to put whatever prices it wants to on its products. It's a free market. Wal-Mart's strategy is simple--sell more of the same item for less money to make the same profit. Do the math: if Wal-Mart sells 10 items for 10 cents, it makes more money than a competitor selling eight items for 12 cents. There's nothing wrong with so-called "predatory pricing" if it moves more stuff.
