U.S. Retail Collapse Accelerates by Jeff Nielson

Posted: July 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

U.S. mall-vacancy rates have soared to all-time highs, and stubbornly refused to budge from those levels. Concurrently, margin-starved retailers are closing their storefronts and opting for more and more on-line commerce. In other words, they’re closing stores which generate significant numbers of jobs and tax revenues in favor of on-line operations which provide little of either. It is a self-reinforcing downward spiral which can only end in total economic disintegration. And we’re told that this collapse in sales, profit margins, employment, and tax revenues can all be taking place while the U.S. economy “recovers”.

This is the reason states are desperate to tax online sales. http://live-free-in-an-unfree-world.com
