Study Aboard Project Analysis on the Wal-Mart experience in Beijing; we will discuss the difference between the international and domestic locations.
I found a Walmart somewhere north of Shanghai and I thought I check it out. I was greatly disappointed. This is a supercenter Walmart and its tiny and not nowhere close to what we expect in a USA Supercenter Walmart..
Also, almost all the the food products are different. They even offer frogs, turtles, etc and you have to catch them in a cage. Not my cup of tea.
Please note this video is not to offend any one or culture. It is merely to show you how a super power company operates differently in different markets.
And for some of you that don't know, some Southern Americans eat frogs too. My father loves to eat bull frogs but i doubt he could kill and prepare it in the kitchen. However, I do recall him killing (boiling) live craps in a pot years ago. Ha.
-This story has nothing to do with China YET they put it in the title... WOW!
Man claims Walmart sold fake iPad. Walmart refuses refund thinking the man is the one who put the dummy iPad in the box and tried to return it. The video is courtesy of WSB-TV in Atlanta, Ga.
Hey guys! So this footage is from this past summer. Sorry it took soooo long for me to edit and upload this. I know there's not much interesting going on, but I decided to put it up anyway just in case you guys care lol.
Just a FYI, as I mentioned in my videos right after the summer last year, my eyelid started to change during the summer. So if you were wondering why my eyes are monolids in this video, it's because they haven't changed yet!
Also, I just wanted to explain the whole currency and things being expensive thing again. So when you convert things (excluding designer stuff or anything highend) to dollars, it does not seem like that much money ($1=6.3 RMB). But what I was trying to say in the video is that people in China have to pay a lot more for groceries and other stuff like that. For example, if i earned $5000 a month in the U.S, it doesn't mean i will earn 6 times the amount of that in China. I will earn 5000 RMB, so the number is the same but they value is different. So I pay $20 for a bucket of cooking oil, which is $20/$5000. But if I was in China, I would pay 105RMB/5000RMB. Woooo that was a long explanation, but I hope I'm making some kind of sense. So yeah.
One more thing, designer and high end stuff are actually like 3 times the price in China than in the states. The iPhone for example, in the states w/o a contract it would cost $649, which is equivalent to around 4000 RMB. But in China, it costs 5000 RMB, which is around almost $800 which is like a lot more than the price in the states. Ok, now I'm really done!
