We have a bigger story coming on @DollarGeneral and its habit of building brand-new stores in areas that make no sense or are offensive - next to elementary schools.

Very interesting to see such a play in low-end, endlessly expanding cheap retail by investors like Goldman, JPMorgan, Rothschild, Blackrock...

The rich investing long on American poverty. Let that sink in.

This is especially unusual when the US has 23.6 sq feet of retail per person.

France, inventor of the department store, has 3.8 sq feet.

So what's the real reason behind continued construction?
