Question of the Day
CANTON, Miss. — Nissan Motor Co. will assemble its Murano crossover vehicle in its Mississippi plant beginning in late 2014.
Canton plant manager Dan Bednarzyk says Nissan will add 400 jobs to its current total of more than 5,000. Nissan wouldn’t say how much it will spend to start making Muranos there.
Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says the state isn’t offering additional incentives.
Nissan now makes the Murano in Kyushu, Japan. The Canton plant, north of Jackson, will be the only worldwide assembly location.
Democratic lawmakers say Wal-Mart lied about bribes
NEW YORK — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. CEO Mike Duke found out in 2005 that the retailer’s Mexico unit was handing out bribes to local officials, according to emails obtained by lawmakers.
The lawmakers say the emails contradict earlier claims by Wal-Mart senior executives that they weren’t aware of bribes being made by the company.
Democratic Reps. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland and Henry A. Waxman of California released emails Thursday that indicate that Mr. Duke and other senior Wal-Mart officials were informed multiple times starting in 2005 about the bribes.
U.S. law forbids American companies from bribing foreign officials.
The lawmakers shared the emails, which they say they got from a confidential source, with Wal-Mart on Wednesday, and sent a letter to Mr. Duke asking for a meeting to discuss them.
Brooke Buchanan, a Wal-Mart spokeswoman, said Thursday that the letter that the lawmakers wrote to Mr. Duke “leaves the wrong impression that our public statements are contradicted by the information they released today.”
