Money & Business writer Matt Bandyk talks about Bruce Springsteen's recent Super Bowl appearance. But, more importantly, he goes on about the whole Wal-Mart issue and the opinion that the company is not a friend to the working man. Consequently, Springsteen may have made a mistake in signing an exclusive deal with the chain.
This is pretty much a ridiculous argument. Wal-Mart is just another chain, perhaps more popular than most. Springsteen is a popular NJ musician...and he has a new album out. Wal-Mart is one of the few chains actually doing well today.
Springsteen is reported to have regretted the Wal-Mart deal, but the whole thing seems like a lot of nonsense. For more, go to http://www.usnews.com/blogs/risky-business/2009/02/02/bruce-springsteen-bounces-back-from-wal-mart-mistake-by-rocking-super-bowl.html.
