“Oh Beautiful, for Retail Space, for Shopping Elbow Room…”

by Joey deVilla on June 26, 2007

Here’s a graph from a blog posting by Jim “Long Emergency” Kunstler titled Peak Suburbia comparing the retail space per person in the U.S., Sweden, the U.K., France and Italy. If the data on which this graph is based is correct, Americans have 6 times more retail space than the Swedes, 8 times that of the Brits and 18 times the shopping square footage doled out to the unfortunate Italians. I suspect that here in Canada, the retail space per person is similar to the American figure.
