Tesco: 'Wal-Mart's Worst Nightmare'

As Tesco takes on the U.S. market, American companies like Wal-Mart are taking notice—and adopting some of the British megaretailer's strategies

Inside: This Week In Europe
Many Americans haven't heard of British supermarket giant Tesco, but it may be the best-run retailer in the world. Now that Tesco has planted its flag in the U.S., rival Wal-Mart is having to take notice as never before, as Kerry Capell explains in our top story this week. We've also got the Gaza conflict, gas tensions in Eastern Europe, British job losses, Germany's bank bailout, and Unilever's new green formula. Plus, our usual assortment of tech, energy, policy, and management coverage, and 2008's best books on innovation.

This is the last edition of the Europe Insider, which is being discontinued. Stay tuned for information on other ways to stay abreast of BusinessWeek's European coverage, and thanks for your support over the past three years.
Andy Reinhardt, Europe Editor
