    K-Mart and Sears Merge. It is really strange. When companies go bankrupt, they usually follow up the bankruptcy with massive consolidation.

    Apparenlty, the main reason for the merger is that Walmart is bigger.

    Does anyone remember when the US had an SEC that blocked megamergers?

    I remember those days. I think that's one of the things Reagan deregulated, no?

    Did anyone see the Frontline piece, "Is Wal-Mart Good for America?" Very interesting. Is Wal-Mart Good for America?

    I saw that piece on walmart, man did those people get screwed. The whole town is unemployed as is the mayor of that town. The free trade agreement sure isnt working there. After watching that story walmart is right up there with bruce springsteen on my treason list.

    Gee, I thought that K-mart was going belly-up. Sears has been trying to re-invent itself since the 70's. Getting bought by K-mart is not an inprovement.

    Can we really call the Merger of 2 bankrupt companies a Mega merger?

    Wouldn't Mega be bigger then the Current Biggest Wal-mart? Which K-mart and Sears even if approved by the SEC wouldn't be.
