I'm looking for speakers or helpful directions to find local experts
(university?) on the 'real cost of discounts' based on the Wal-mart
expose' piece.    http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/77/walmart.html

Topics may include: the real cost of growing/producing food crops; the
real costs to manufacture or employ in America; what consumers are
getting for paying the higher price; and similar off-shoot topics.  Any
links, references, or referrals would be greatly appreciated.

Will university staff (agriculture, economics, food science) have the
knowledge to assist?  USDA staff?
