While certain aspects of its application have come into question in the past decade, it nonetheless serves as a foundation upon which other macroeconomic investigation may be based.

Target, Sears, and Wal Mart Macroeconomic Forecasts
A 4 page paper discussing forecasts for these companies 2004-2006 in terms of macroeconomic factors.

Sears and Target are not entirely equal with Wal-Mart in terms of buying power, but they have the necessary management tools that could place them on more equal footing with the retail giant.
