That's an interesting article because it includes this mindblowing tidbit:

“There was really no relationship between development and the increase in consumer spending,” said Stacy Mitchell, a senior researcher with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, an advocacy group.

Between 1990 and 2005, consumer spending per capita rose 14 percent, adjusted for inflation, yet retail space per capita in the United States doubled, said Stacy Mitchell, a senior researcher at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, an advocacy group.

In her view, that created too much store space even for a good economy, and then retailers were hit by the recession. “All of this overdevelopment has pulled the rug out from under them,” she said.
