America. A prosperous place fueled by industry, once a mighty trade icon. The rest of the world is gaining strength and I see a weakness in the retail world due to massive amounts of import and online purchases. Strategically strengthening our retail through heavy import tax and heavy online shipping tax could greatly benefit us urbanly and economically. Convenience is truly costing retail too much and we haven’t see the effect yet, while it is wonderful to receive items at my place or in a drop box but it should not be the cheapest option. If retail is not protected through consumer purchases we will have vacant streets and that is not good for America.
