    Well, it was the tallest structure in the world for centuries, until cathedrals of the Middle Ages.

    Don’t worry. In five years they’ll move across town and that mega-pyramid will be empty.

    katzenbooks45!: Yeah, they come in, sell at a loss, use slave labor, and destroy all the free enterprise stores that special order, support a family, and compete fairly. Capitalism in action. Feudalism, capitalism, communism – only differ in the junta in charge: hereditary aristocracy, overlapping directors of the Forbes 500, presidium of the central committee – otherwise, no difference.

    Charles Smith: You mean unions would prevent underselling honest merchants? Probably in that a living wage would cut into the money siphoned off by the directorate, but short of laws requiring unions, how will you get capitalists to permit them. Even with laws allowing workers to decide, the robber barons just break the laws and bribe lawmakers to keep it that way. You don’t seem bright enough to be a robber baron, you must be one of the serfs.
