That is a wonderful piece of advice on declining malls but I believe, as many in my industry, the continued references to "Obamacare" were more than a show of bias, something CRE Professionals should steer clear of at all cost. On that same note, I have seen a decrease in my healthcare cost and continue to visit the same doctor I have used for 25+ years.
