We capitalist pigs like to think that we have the corner on soul crushing Malls, but it looks like Communist China has us beat:
With 230 escalators, more than 1,000 shops, restaurant space the size of two football fields, and a skating rink – the Art Deco mall is a testament in glass and steel to the communist party’s desire to create a stable, happy, middle-income consumer class.
The article goes on to point out that there aren’t enough people in China that can afford to shop at this mall, but that is besides the point. Behold the glory of the mall! I wonder what the food court is like.
