"Destruction of the temple of consumption"/"Untergang der Konsumtempel"

A German article about US Shopping Malls. (the link has already been translated through Google Translation).

Be sure to check out the photos, very interesting. Especially the "Jesus Shopping Center."

Nice article, it's fascinating to watch the decline and fall of western consumer society - maybe the suburbs are next. We will either find out what are the malls replacement or party in the ruins, either way it's all good!
