BENTONVILLE, Ark. — “Capital isn’t scarce; vision is.” This flippant platitude was once uttered by Sam Walton, the founder of the importunately ubiquitous Wal-Mart empire. One wonders what “Mr. Sam” would have to say about that after taking a gander at Bentonville today, the pint-sized hometown of one of his first successful stores, in northwestern Arkansas, where certainly neither capital nor vision are scarce. Then again, he also once opined that “high expectations are the key to everything,” and this cannot be denied in conjunction with Bentonville.
