Let's see....the Bucksbaum family was 105th on the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest people, with a net worth of $3.3 billion. The Bucksbaum's own GGP. Let THEM bail out the company!

The days of malls and retail shops are over now. There will be a new America after this is over. Frugal with an anemic economy, we must now accept that we are just another country and China is the Worlds producing nation. People will shop in box stores for neccesities, not in malls just for something to do.

GGP PROVIDES HUGE ECONOMIC IMPACT TO ALL THE COMMUNITIES THAT IT SERVES WHETHER IT IS A SHOPPING MALL, PLANNED HOUSING COMMUNITY, RETAIL CENTER OR OFFICE BUILDING. SURE, THE BUCKSBAUM'S OWN GGP AND THEY ARE WORTH BILLIONS BUT AT LEAST THEY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE AREAS THEY AFFECT AND NOT TAKE AWAY FROM IT.

GGP has kept our town employed and paying taxes that the city would not otherwise have. The Bucksbaums are very generous people that treat their employees fairly and add to communities that otherwise may not have malls available to shop in!
