    Plus, one of the most telling indicator is that commercial property tax assessments are stagnant, pg 234, and over the last ten years the top ten commercial property tax payers (pg 239) have remained the same: seven shopping malls, the gas, electric, and telephone utilities. No growing competitive businesses in the lot.
