Wouldn't it be better to have a Post Office bank?
That way, everybody could do e-commerce wherever they wanted, instead of Walmart's dimly lit and unsanitary box stores:
Walmart’s major e-commerce advantage, said Joel Anderson, chief executive of Walmart.com, is its 4,000 stores. They provide a network of distribution points for things like same-day shipping and in-store pick-up. That is particularly helpful for the quarter of Walmart customers without credit cards or bank accounts who previously were excluded from e-commerce, he said, because they can order online and pay with cash in a Walmart store.
Yeah, becoming unbanked is another thing I worry about.
Of course, I can't really find the book selection at Walmart that I can at Amazon....
