Mail order catalogs, downtown department stores, suburban malls, and modern home delivery

 Here's a 10 minute video in which I discuss how retail markets have changed over the last century and more, with the invention of mail order catalogs, and the growth of downtown department stores (in part as a result of urban public transportation), and then suburban shopping malls, before our current age of digital commerce and home delivery.

This was my discussion of talks by Rob Townsend and David Autor at the October zoom conference
