Recession Turns Malls Into Ghost Towns

"With their maze of walkways and fast-food courts, malls have long been an iconic, if sometimes unsightly, presence in the American retail landscape. A few were made famous by their sheer size, others for the range of shopping and social diversions they provided.
But the long recession is helping to empty out the promenades. Some analysts estimate that the number of so-called "dead malls" -- centers debilitated by anemic sales and high vacancy rates -- will swell to more than 100 by the end of this year."

I don't think they'll stay empty for long.

They'll fill up with the growing ranks of the homeless sooner than anyone thinks.

I've thought that squatting was going to be a huge topic in the next frw months, if not weeks. The execrable MSM touched on it a while back but has since backed off the topic, probably to keep the real devastation quiet and also not to give desperate people ideas.

nolocontendre-i dont know if you have ever heard of this site-Urban -I have looked at it on and off for years and still cannot make up my mind about them-either George Ure is a "real" good guy-or he does a hell of an act playing one! Todays free daily post was projecting something like a mid July derivatives meltdown-if that happens we might see malls filling up indeed-I love how the hateful and hated MSM is up to their usual tricks trying to deny the pain folks are in over this second depression-Yahoo news the other day had a blurb about even though there is a bad recession people are basically happy-I thought WTF??? people at least the ones i know and not all are as poor as me are more worried than I have seen them-ever!! best to you and the Mrs and all who comment here as always!!!

Yes Devin, I frequent Urban Survival and Ure's caustic financial prognostications. Have to take that Half Past Human stuff with a good grain of salt because it could be just faulty interpretation after all, and it seems like they try to fit things in after the fact, but it's good to read skeptical market analysis.

It's mainstream media's job in this meltdown to keep us distracted and stupid while the criminals loot the system completely. In a couple of months most people will wake up to the fact that their future has been totally robbed, and their kids and their children have a very bleak life ahead of them. I've read that the elite are quite worried, and rightly so, that their vicious manipulations may backfire and they won't be able to manage the chaos. To that I say amen, where's the trees and the ropes.
