Burt Flickinger appears on Bloomberg Daybreak: Australia-ASIA with Haidi Stroud-Watts in Sydney and David Ingles in Hong Kong to discuss retail trends & forecasts, highlighting the potential of a Singles' Day-style event every 90 days to boost US shopping malls and other bricks & mortar retailers and the least-obvious trend in retail: the shame of the supermarket sector's low use of rooftop solar, given Thomas Edison's insight that the Sun is the only inexhaustible source of Energy, and that Solar Power is best.
