McDonaldization and Wal Martization of the US

Nice graphic (from Economix, via Felix Salmon) that maps how far any given point in the US is from the nearest McDonald’s is an excellent illustration of the "McDonaldization" of the US.

An even more fascinating and must see Wal Mart growth video about the WalMartization of the US is available here. I visualize a distinct tipping point effect at work in the growth of these stores.
