Jobs Uber Alles

Can I nominate the most underappreciated economic story from last weekend. In the Valley News Dispatch is this detailed piece:

Which would have a host of great essay questions for students of economic development.  In there is a line about how local officals say the mall has "more than 4,300 job".  Anyone want to comment on the veracity of a claim that any retail mall has created jobs on net.
It was an even older Trib piece by Michael Yeomans that looked into the really long history of the site.  In the future there may be some interesting assessment issues with the site.

"Jobs on net" may be hard to prove, but "jobs with (hair) nets" can be proven.
