Amazon is just a convenient scapegoat that these retailers like to blame for their own ineptitude in adapting to a changing society and retail environment. Amazon filled a niche that the other retailers were too blind to see. Plus, Amazon's share of the retail market is minuscule in comparison to the market share that has been lost by the major retailers in the last 10 years or so.

It's the death of the middle class. I live in Dallas area, and for a city so big, there is only one big major mall that's actually in the elite area, all other malls died and in the nearby suburbs too. The only 5-6 malls are in the wealthy suburbs up in the same 1-2 cities. This is crazy for an area of at least 5 million (Dallas area, not counting FtWorth area) to have just like 5 really great malls and all concentrated in a single place (Frisco or in Plano, but near Frisco).

You would expect a huge city like Dallas in a first world country to have 5-6 malls within it's city limits.

In a way he is the "calvary" (death) coming to the rescue as opposed to the *cavalry*.

Why not blame millenials, the crisis and the weakminded too?

Capitalism at work pure and simple.

It's not just the internet.

They don't Carter to parents, they don't cater to men, and they are always overpriced.

We have one in my town that has an upstairs second story, and the whole entire upstairs is for female consumers. Probably thirty stores.

None of them have strollers, and parking is bad, even if it's empty. It's so bad, we've been getting the carts from the downstairs Sears, and using them.

So, as you can see..even WALMART is more concerned with their customers. And, if you are in sales...that's a very bad thing to think.

These malls are empty because everybody is poor and you can't go to them without getting BLOWN UP for shits sake so people stay away due to low budgets AND personal safety.

Stop only buying from Amazon.

The guy is absolutely right. Drug stores especially have way over built. There are so many places where there is a Kroger or Walmart selling drugs and often sharing the same parking lot, there is a drug store selling groceries. What's point?

Good... My internet works fine.... :)

Why don't you let him finish his answers before going on about something stupid and unrelated. I'd like to know what he has to say.

I would love to hear that guy with 30 minutes to explain his views.
I dislike the TV format so much.
Fox, get this guy back on set with a longer segment.
