Planet Walmart: Five Big Facts About the World's Largest Company

By Dan Burrows

 

Walmart (WMT) isn't just the world's biggest retailer -- It's the world's largest company, at least on the basis of sales. True, Apple (AAPL) has a greater market value (which keeps rising) than Walmart, and plenty of businesses are more profitable. But when it comes to revenue, no other company comes close to Walmart.

Walmart booked $416 billion in sales over the last 12 months. The next biggest company by revenue, Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A), would have to add another $85 billion just to pull into a tie. (Meanwhile, that's about two year's worth of sales from Apple.)

And yet the top-line numbers don't convey just how massive Walmart really is. To put the leviathan perspective, we've compiled some fun facts that help illustrate its heft:

1. Walmart Is Bigger Than Norway
If the retailer's $416 billion in revenue were gross domestic product, Walmart would be the 25th-largest national economy in the world -- bigger than Norway, Venezuela or the United Arab Emirates, to name just a few.

2. Walmart Takes Up a Lot Room
If you put all of Walmart's more than 8,500 far-flung stores in one place, they would take up more than 880 million square feet. That's the equivalent of 135 Pentagons, 158 Vatican Cities, 45 Monacos -- or half the country of Lichtenstein.

 

3. Good Thing Walmart Doesn't Have an Army


If Walmart's 2.1 million full-time employees were an army, the retailer would have the second-largest active military in the world, just behind China (2.3 million). Not only would Walmart outnumber the U.S. military, it would have almost as many active-duty personnel as Russia and North Korea combined.

4. Walmart Is Into Infrastructure
Building out and maintaining a giant network of stores, and a distribution system to feed them, isn't cheap. In the last 12 months Walmart put $12 billion into capital expenditures. That's as much as the federal government has budgeted for education and infrastructure spending in California, the No.1 recipient, and more than the entire budget for the U.S. Commerce Department.

5. Walmart Could Drive to the Moon and Back (1,500 Times)
Walmart's nearly 8,000 drivers operate one of the largest trucking fleets in the world. They're expected to drive a total of 712 million miles this year. That's the same as driving around the world at the equator 28,600 times -- or nearly 1,500 round-trips to the moon.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists,
Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids,
but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I
want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the
sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run
its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on
what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can
smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each
taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure
our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be
relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide
other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA
and the military.

--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind,
solar and biodiesel.

--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are,
however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move
all three of them.

--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies,
Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps,
homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.

--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.

--We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to
invade and hammer places that threaten us.

--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our
way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness
and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be
paying the bill.

--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can
take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing
doctors.

--We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."

--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach
the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".

--We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give
trickle up poverty your best shot.

--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our
flag.

Sincerely,
John J. Wall
Law Student and an American

Money

Money

       1)  Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day.

        2)  This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

        3)  Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St.. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

        4)  Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

        5)  Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people and is the largest private Employer, and most speak English.

        6)  Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the World.

        7)  Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger & Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only 15 years.

        8)  During this same period, 31 Supermarket Chains sought bankruptcy.

        9)  Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

        10)  Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had 5 Years ago.

        11)  This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur At a Wal-Mart store.  (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

        12)  90% of all Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart.

        You  may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart
To fix the economy because Washington sure as hell can’t.

 MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans - Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before.
You
had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ??

The problem is, America is NOT a Democracy - it is a Republic! As our Founding Fathers established, can we keep it?
